In fact, our Inclusiveness and Diversity team recently welcomed area students from the ¡Adelante! America youth program—a part of LAUP (Latin Americans United for Progress)—to our Greenhouse and Design Yard.
The visit was a great way for the students to learn more about us, our industry, and the types of careers available at the company.
Two students offered these comments about their visit:
The tour of the Design Yard gave me the opportunity to see some of the work engineers do, which I found very useful because engineering is one of the careers I am considering pursuing in college.
This experience opened my eyes to how much work it takes to just make a chair. The process of making a chair or any other piece of furniture involves a large amount of work, creativity, lab testing, and much more.
Meeting with area students also helps us connect with our community and understand what we can do as a company to make a difference—and a better world.
