N.E.W Dragonboat Festival
Oshkosh was a proud sponsor of the Northeast Wisconsin Dragonboat Festival, an annual extravaganza celebrating culture, camaraderie and competition brought by the Northeast Wisconsin Chinese Association and the City of Oshkosh. This festival drew attention from centuries-old traditions and united teams from across the region to engage in the thrilling sport of dragon boat racing. Our Oshkosh Dragonboat team took the #1 spot in the corporate division! Beyond the races, the N.E.W Dragonboat Festival embraced a vibrant cultural fair, complete with diverse cuisines, lively performances and interactive exhibitions that recognized the region’s rich multicultural heritage.
Recently, our Culture Connect 360 Network and Young Professionals Network co-hosted an event in celebration of Juneteenth, increasing awareness and education about its importance. Oshkosh team members, both in-person and virtually, had the opportunity to hear first-hand from Tyrone Jordon (TJ), Board of Directors for Oshkosh Corporation, about key characteristics that helped him be successful. They were challenged to find ways to look out for other people’s interests in the actions we do every day, including being courageous enough to ask the hard questions and step out to do what’s right.
Demonstrating we belong
Our Oshkosh Pride and Equality Network EBRG participated in the Milwaukee PRIDE parade as a way to demonstrate Oshkosh’s commitment to fostering a connected culture. Year after year, team members and their loved ones have such a great time supporting an inclusive community with enthusiasm. Our People First culture fuels an environment where every team member feels valued and empowered to be their full self.
