“I’ve really found, around the world, the women engineers have the same sort of needs – they want to be respected, they want challenging work, they want to have good opportunities,” says Stacey Delvecchio, additive manufacturing product manager and former president of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).
At Caterpillar, we’re committed to providing our team members with opportunities to do meaningful work and learn new skills. We also strive to ensure that our workplace is diverse and representative of the many customers we serve around the globe.
As part of our continuous journey towards impacting gender balance, we’re a proud member of SWE’s Corporate Partnership Council (CPC). Along with our fellow CPC companies, we support SWE in creating opportunities for women engineers and technologists and promoting diversity and inclusion in the engineering and technology workforce.
Our work is powered by our people, and working together, we create sustainable, world-changing solutions that impact lives.
SWE provides programming and resources that help us empower our global employees – women and men. Our employees that are active members indicate the networking, professional development and outreach opportunities gained through SWE have been beneficial to their career development.
In addition to supporting our employees’ professional development, SWE provides a recruiting pipeline of talent for Caterpillar. Students that participate in SWE sections have the opportunity to develop leadership skills that will serve them well in future roles.
