Women in STEM

Differences in skill sets, career paths, level of experience, background, but also in ethnicity and gender have a hugely positive impact on team performance – this is a proven fact. At ABB, we have a heritage in fostering environments that enable diversity and inclusion across businesses, markets and professions. In celebration of the UN International Day of Women and Girls in Science, February 11, 2020, we kickoff our own Women in Science campaign, profiling talented ABB employees with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) educations. The campaign will run through to the UN International Women’s Day on March 8, bridging those two annual days that are a tribute to women around the world. 

The individuals we spotlight contribute to the success of ABB in many different ways – leading teams developing disruptive technologies, bringing cutting edge technologies to market, and working with customers around the world. Several are recipients of the ABB Jürgen Dormann Foundation (JDF) scholarships. The Foundation provides scholarships to engineering students in different parts of the world who can prove a high standard of academic achievement and who need financial support to be able to continue their studies.
