International Day of Education

Evonik celebrates ‚2020 International day of Education’. Education and learning is the key driver for advancing a Diversity breakthrough. Reverse mentoring enables learning and facilitates cross generational and cross cultural relationships.

The United Nations has proclaimed the 24th of January as International Day of Education to honour the role of education to human well being and sustainable development. As the world is rapidly globalising, diversity is becoming increasingly present across all aspects of life. Education and learning brings the ability to recognize, appreciate and live without bias, in a society full of diversity. Evonik enables education and continuous learning of its employees through Reverse Mentoring.

Reverse Mentoring is an inverted type of mentoring relationship where junior or less experienced employees’ mentor the more experienced employees and/or managers to help them acquire new learning or perspective.
