People Leaders

People leaders support the foundation of our strategy through ensuring accountability and prioritization across the company.


MARC Leadership Development Spotlight:

Southwire has assinged all Directors, Site Leaders, Vice Presidents, Senior Vice Presidents and Executive Leaders to go through the MARC Leadership Development program in 2023. MARC, Men Advocating for Real Change, is a Catalyst initiative that inspires and equips leaders to leverage their unique opportunity and responsibility to be advocates for equity. While MARC is focused on engaging men, it is not exclusive to men. The initiative is about building effective gender partnership—which can only be achieved by bringing everyone to the table. MARC’s leading-edge research, breakthrough thought leadership and transformational learning programs disrupt traditional DEI approaches to enhance gender partnership and accelerate the creation of inclusive, equitable workplaces for all.


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Performance Objective Spotlight:

To ensure leadership accountability across the enterprise, Southwire launched a DEI performance objective requirement for all people leaders in 2022. This is centered around all managers and above being required to have, at minimum, 10% of their overall performance focused on DEI.
