Under Jim’s leadership Dow announced a bold framework aiming to address systemic racism and inequality within the company and its employees’ communities. Named Dow ACTs, the program’s acronym represents the three pillars of the strategy: Advocacy, Community, and Talent. Dow ACTs includes pledging $5 million over the next five years to help accelerate change, establishing a paid time off policy for voting and other non-partisan related civic activities, and including an additional $4.6 million investment in historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and community college skilled trades programs through 2024. Jim also serves as the Executive Sponsor of the Global African Affinity Network (GAAN) Employee Resource Group, which works to provide advocacy for one of the most underrepresented populations in Dow. Outside Dow, Jim regularly participates in discussions with other companies and organizations on the importance of inclusion and equality in advancing the world’s economy.
