When it comes to STEM-related fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), women are often under-represented. According to UNESCO, only 28% of the world’s researchers are female, and only 8% of students choosing engineering, manufacturing and construction courses across the globe are women.
At Sulzer, we are committed to supporting an inclusive workplace for all. We take measures to tackle the gender disparity in science and engineering. This is why, in 2019, we launched the “Sulzer Scholarship for Women in Science and Engineering”.
Female students of engineering, technology and science fields can apply to a Sulzer scholarship, offered in close collaboration with selected academic institutions. The scholarship entails financial support, access to Sulzer coaches, learning and practice opportunities, visits to the local Sulzer facilities, access to local industrial events and invitations to Sulzer’s social events.
