Air Products Diversity

Air Products prides itself on having a dynamic workforce made up of people from all backgrounds. Recently, the Inclusion Network featured our Site Director, Gretchen Swain, to gather insights from her experience in the Air Products company.

Here is a short snippet of the conversation:

Question:
Why are you passionate about the Diversity and Inclusion Network at Air Products?

Answer:
I have reached a point in my career/life where I recognize when people are comfortable or uncomfortable with a situation. Working to ensure an inclusive workspace, where people feel comfortable in their work interactions, leads to a higher level of participation by the team members and therefore greater success overall.

Question:
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
Answer:
I wake up at 3 am to exercise before coming to work. I am also an avid reader, reading two books per week.
