SAN RAMON, Calif.—Signaling a dedication to further strengthen its unique corporate culture, CooperCompanies president and chief executive officer Albert White has signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge. This is the world’s largest CEO-driven initiative to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace, according to a Cooper announcement this week. “Inclusion and diversity play a central role in how we operate,” White said. “Valuing different perspectives and experiences makes us even more competitive and helps employees reach their full potential.”

By becoming part of the CEO Action movement, Cooper will extend its belief about embracing and celebrating diversity across all aspects of the company, White added.

Cooper joins more than 800 other prominent corporations that have pledged to promote conversation about diversity and inclusion within the workplace, according to the announcement.
