DuPont Pioneer has been selected as the 2013 recipient of the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Diversity Award.
The Diversity Award is a distinct recognition honoring employers who have made significant achievements in championing diversity at their businesses and organizations. The award also showcases the efforts of these employers in the community.
DuPont Pioneer President Paul Schickler accepted the award via a videotaped message.
“We depend on diversity. If you walk down our hallways in Johnston, Iowa or tune into one of our conference calls, or visit any of our worldwide locations, you will realize just how critical cooperation across borders, backgrounds and languages is to our success and sustainability as a business,” said Paul. “The agricultural challenges farmers face are unique, and different to local environments and cultures. Therefore, we need a diversity of opinions, experiences, and life stories to come up with the right solutions.”
