Sulzer supporting women in industry

Sulzer sponsors first virtual Empowering Women in Industry event

Empowering Women in Industry’s first virtual conference and awards gala enjoyed considerable success among participants. Sulzer supported the event as Bronze sponsor and participated in online workshops. Key achievements from leading women throughout industry were celebrated with the aim to promote gender equality in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM).

The Empowering Women in Industry association honors the successes and vital roles that nominees have played in educating and inspiring the next generation of leaders. The organization’s second annual event focused on the theme ‘make an impact’ and took place online, allowing a wider, global audience to take part in a full day of talks, interactive workshops and an awards gala. 

Sulzer employees contributed to connecting, educating, and empowering women by participating in workshops and talks during the virtual event. Attendees were able to connect with them, drawing inspiration from their achievements, as well as learning more about Sulzer’s activities aimed at supporting our staff.

As a company we have a longstanding commitment to gender equality as well as personal development through partnerships, sponsorships, mentoring and training programs. Last year we launched the Sulzer scholarship for women in science and engineering and have since awarded several university scholarships to aspiring and talented young women with a passion for engineering.

Events like Empowering Women in Industry are another important step in advancing the conversation around improving women’s representation and progression in sectors that are traditionally male-dominated. We couldn’t be prouder of our successful employees that joined the virtual conference and look forward to supporting the association in the future.
