As we celebrate Black History Month, we're also marking a major milestone. Kimberly-Clark’s African Ancestry Employee Network (AAEN) is celebrating its 30th anniversary!

The Woodsmen, the founding members of the employee resource group (ERG), established AAEN in 1994. For three decades, AAEN and its 2,000+ global members have been a driving force for diversity, equity and inclusion at Kimberly-Clark. AAEN has a legacy of firsts, including being the first ERG, establishing the first formal mentoring program and creating the first diversity conference for Kimberly-Clark.

We're proud of this incredible milestone and the impact AAEN is making in our workplace and communities. Thank you to AAEN for delivering on our purpose, Better Care for a Better World, and fostering an inclusive environment for all.
