Tenneco has signed the Romanian Diversity Charter  

Tenneco joined the Romanian Diversity Charter since we believe in creating a positive work environment where our team members can thrive. It starts and ends with building and maintaining trust and freedom. We treat everyone with the same dignity and respect regardless of level and background, and we are committed to diversity and inclusion in everything we do.

At Tenneco, we believe that a commitment to Inclusion, Diversity and Equity is a business imperative, not just the right thing to do, because if done well it allows us to:

  • Become an employer of choice who can attract, develop, and retain the best talent.
  • Drive innovation and meaningful results through high performing diverse teams who deliver an unmatched customer experience. 
  • Develop leaders that champion a culture of inclusion and engagement.
  • Help strengthen the communities where we live and work.

As Inclusion and Diversity is foundational to all measures of a company’s success, Tenneco’s IDEA Board was founded to help develop and assist the company’s efforts to engrain the values of diversity into the fabric of our culture, empowering our team members to use the collective momentum created to make tomorrow better.

The official launch of the Romanian Diversity Charter took place on 18 April 2018, Romania thus becoming the 21st country in the European Union with a Diversity Charter and benefiting from the membership in the European Diversity Platform. Today, the Charter brings together 191 signatories, covering approx. 240.000 employees from companies, public institutions and NGOs, who have publicly assumed the principles of the Charter, so that diversity, equal opportunities and social inclusion become values acknowledged and respected in Romania. Under the auspices of the Romanian Diversity Charter, several initiatives have taken place (experience exchanges, workshops, seminars, debates, task forces, learning and mentorship programs) where different practices and organizational policies of diversity management were presented, analyzed, debated and disseminated. Since 2021 the Charter and its signatories celebrate together the EU Diversity Month to promote diversity in the workplace and in society. More information at https://www.cartadiversitatii.ro
