Ball has 10 employee resource groups known as Ball Networks (BNs). Our BN members participate in a number activities focused on: career development, company culture, community outreach to help educate and empower individuals. Examples of Networks include the African Diaspora, Pride, and Women’s Network. In addition to our Network Groups, Ball has seven Ball Interest (BI) Groups ranging from Astronomy & Photography to Cycling Interests. BI members participate in a variety of internal and external activities that reflect their passions and concernment both inside and outside of Ball, reflecting our commitment and support to our team members’ passions and innovative ideas. Sponsored by Ball executives, each of the groups are visible, value-added organizations that build and support a diverse and inclusive environment at Ball.
Ball actively partners with community-based organizations that promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in under-resourced communities to amplify the message that DEI cultivates innovation. We’ve also expanded our relationships with professional organizations (National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers, Society of Women Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, etc.) to reach more talented individuals.
While we’ve made great amounts of progress with our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts, we are not done and there is still so much more to do. DEI is a journey and we are incredibly excited to improve upon and continue it.
