Demonstrating we belong
Recently, our Oshkosh Corporation Pride and Equality Network EBRG made a debut appearance in the Milwaukee PRIDE Parade during Pride month. Team members and their loved ones had a great time walking together to show Oshkosh supporting the LGBTQ+ community, living our core values and making a difference in the community. This was the first public appearance for Oshkosh and the team is excited to continue to spread awareness and demonstrate to our communities that we all belong.
The importance of body language
Recently, our Young Professionals Network and Culture Connect 360 Network co-hosted an event focused on the importance of body language which featured guest speaker, Kristin Bock, Certified Body Language Speaker, Trainer and founder of Body Language Blueprints. Oshkosh team members learned subtle yet impactful techniques to demonstrate warmth and competence when connecting with others. As a key takeaway, team members were encouraged to reflect upon what actions they could take to make others feel seen and heard.
Hosting distinguished veteran guests
In May, members of the Oshkosh Corporation Military Network (OCMN) had the privilege of hosting the Deputy Assistant Secretary Margarita Devlin of the US Department of Labor among other distinguished guests from the US Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) and Wisconsin’s Department of Workforce Development (DWD). The group shared our global initiatives for hiring and supporting Veterans in the workforce. With support from our Pierce team, they gave a tour of the Pierce Assembly 41 (Appleton) location, where the team heard from a few Veteran production team members about their unique military/civilian transitions.
