We Are All Covia

Diversity & Inclusion

Covia is committed to embracing and promoting diversity and inclusion (D&I) where we work, with whom we do business, and where we live.

We strive to create an inclusive culture where diversity is valued and respected and where all feel included and engaged. We are intentional in our efforts to bring diverse Team Members together and create opportunities to contribute their unique skills, experiences and perspectives in the pursuit of Covia’s business growth objectives. 

Enabling all Team Members to perform at their best while being themselves is fundamental to the Clearly Covia Values and Culture.

Through Covia’s diversity and inclusion journey, we embrace and celebrate the diversity of our backgrounds and experiences, and in turn, anticipate greater diversity in ideas and our decision-making processes, which will create a better future for our Team Members and our organization. In so doing, we will be able to cultivate our reputation as an employer of choice and good neighbor in the communities we call “home.”
