Diana Rosenberger
Sustainable Sourcing Manager
Shaw Industries Group, Inc.

“I am passionate about using my skills, resources and experiences to contribute to new ways of creating products that will ultimately create a healthier, more sustainable future for generations to come. We all have a responsibility to source and manufacture products responsibly.”

Diana’s unique background brings diversity and creativity to her role as Shaw’s Sustainable Sourcing Manager. When tasked with embedding sustainability principles into the way Shaw sources products, Diana transformed the company’s stand-alone supplier code of conduct into a legally-binding sourcing policy that was crucial to Shaw’s ongoing commitment to sustainability. In 2017, Diana also led the company to become a signatory in the UN Global Compact, a commitment that brought tremendous value when communicating with suppliers and customers. 

Recognized as a change agent within Shaw, Diana has impacted countless female employees through mentorship and guidance. From taking smaller steps like encouraging her female colleagues to monumental achievements such as leading a billion-dollar company to a more sustainable future, Diana continually blazes new trails for women in manufacturing and beyond. Inspiring strength within women in the workplace is a vital aspect of Diana’s life both inside and outside of Shaw. For example, Diana has mentored rising female talent within Shaw’s Women's Innovation Network’s (WiN) True North program. Additionally, she is responsible for Shaw’s Supplier Diversity program, which tracks the amount of spend with small businesses and diverse-owned businesses. Her dedication to inclusive spending not only opens opportunities into new markets for Shaw, it increases economic opportunities within small or historically disadvantaged populations. 

Diana is passionate about using her professional skills, resources and education to better the lives of others. With prior experience in the homebuilding industry, Diana has led a project for Habitat for Humanity and participated in a “Builder Blitz” project to build a home for a deserving family. From securing the necessary financial commitments for the home build, to spending time with the family and allowing them to take part in the design process, Diana’s leadership was felt throughout the project. These are only a few examples of efforts spearheaded by Diana that have made a difference in the lives of others and the community.
