SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Milliken & Co., a global diversified manufacturer with materials science expertise, has been included on Forbes Best Employers for Diversity list for the second year in a row.
The 2023 list, comprised of 500 U.S.-based companies, recognizes employers across 25 industries who are prioritizing diversity-related best practices within their organizations.
“At Milliken, we’re committed to inclusion,” says Milliken’s President and CEO Halsey Cook. “By fostering diverse teams globally, we get better solutions to the challenges facing our customers.”
