ABB engineers are at the heart of what the company does, for its customers and its communities around the world. International Women in Engineering Day recognises the female engineers at ABB, who are not just contributing to the firm's teams, but are also paving the way for a more diverse and inclusive industry and workplace.
This year’s theme is women who are helping to #shapetheworld through their engineering roles. ABB is proud of its women in engineering, as well as to be working with the many talented female engineers of its customers and partners.
Peter Terwiesch, President, Industrial Automation, comments, "“We actively embrace and nurture diversity at ABB. Inclusive teams bring along a richer range of perspectives and experiences which help to challenge our thinking continuously and drive better results. Today, on International Women in Engineering Day, we proudly recognise our female engineers who inspire us every day with their curiosity, expertise and leadership."
The company has created a microsite to showcase several examples of its female engineers. These include: Apala Ray, global cybersecurity manager, Process Industries (based in India); Audrey Wang Gosselin, new graduate on ABB’s LEAD engineering programme; and Samantha Spano, Global product marketing & communications manager, digital solutions for energy industries (based in the US - Sam has a chemical engineering degree and has taken a slightly different career path).
