Contributing to Community Success
As part of its global commitment to sustainability, Dow looks to invest in programs and organizations that will have a long-term impact and serve as a starting point for widespread community involvement and growth. The list of organizations, projects, programs, events and activities that Dow sponsors or is involved with in Louisiana is extensive, but most can be categorized into three areas of focus: economy & workforce development, science, mathematics, engineering and technology related education, and protection of the environment.
Dow’s innovative Community Success process allows strategic Dow communities to provide qualitative and quantitative inputs on their quality of life issues and what Dow’s appropriate role is – whether it’s directly addressing community needs or using its leadership position to influence other organizations. Through this process, Dow is able to better align the community’s needs with Dow’s intellectual and business knowledge-how to maximize the long-term benefit to the community.
