Our success depends on having the top talent, and gender balance in the workplace is an important way we will build the best team possible. The increased complexity of our business challenges demands that we have the right talent in the right place at the right time. Research even shows that companies that achieve gender balance, especially at leadership levels, yield more positive results. This issue matters to both men and women and is essential to the fulfillment of our company’s values on a global scale. When women play a vital role at Caterpillar, the whole company wins.
