Women at Caterpillar

Our success depends on having the top talent. 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.

Women in Leadership is our intentional, focused step on a continuous journey towards impacting gender balance. We are encouraging global changes in staff and executive talent, helping our female employees — and Caterpillar — be competitively positioned for the future. There are three main areas of focus in order to drive this crucial change:

We are vocal in our support of women inspiring great ideas and innovation. That means we properly recognize and celebrate women who are getting results.

We ensure women are given fair access to career development and leadership opportunities, and encourage more women to join our company’s work. 

We actively shape policies and procedures to better support and inspire women to start or continue their employment with us. Our Women’s Initiative Network is just one of many groups focused on this effort.
