Community

Our Role in the Community

We see ourselves as a part of the community. This brings with it a responsibility that we step up to with passion and initiative. Our commitment ranges from activities of individual employees to actions of the whole company in:

  • Education
  • Social welfare
  • Health and environment
  • Etc.
Here are a few examples of how we live our role in the community:
 
 Future chemists at work?
Science Camp - not just watching, but also experimenting yourself. Through our support of this initiative for vacation day care, young children have the opportunity to develop an early interest in natural sciences.
The conclusion of every Science Camp is a 'researcher festival' which is prepared and organized by the children where they demonstrate what they occupied themselves with during the week.
 
A Surprise for our Support With Musical Instruments
On our Open Door day the class of a local primary school gave a performance on their new recorders. We were delighted at this display of thanks. The parents were just as nervous as the young musicians on their first public performance.
 
University of Applied Sciences Wiesbaden visits Dow Corning
Since the summer of 2005 we have offered students of the University of Applied Sciences Wiesbaden participation in an exclusive seminar. Topics like Finance & Business Management, Controlling, Measurement Tools and Budgeting are conveyed in a practical-orientated environment.
 
Wiesbaden engagiert (Wiesbaden cares)
Employees from different companies meet for this event to collectively provide help in various social facilities. This initiative is sponsored by the City of Wiesbaden. 20 Dow Corning employees were exempt from work for that day to support this good cause and provided active support in Kindergartens, handicapped and elderly homes and other facilities. Our employees experienced touching moments, for example what it is like being in a wheelchair and experience the daily challenges.
 
Cooperation with local fire brigade
In recognition of a long standing cooperation, the local fire brigade put on a display during an Open Door day at our site. Both young and old were enthusiastic about getting a close look at their vehicles. As the fire brigade was also in charge of refreshments, the sausages did NOT get burned.
