Women at Schneider Electric share perspectives on diversity

 March 05, 2019

Schneider Electric provides equal opportunities to everyone, everywhere. Schneider Electric women leaders share insights about diversity and inclusion in the workplace and why they are proud to work for Schneider Electric.

Emily Heitman, Vice President of Power Systems at Schneider Electric

"Schneider really does develop a culture of empowerment. They asked me to take this business and run with it. I was given full authority to grow my team, to make the moves that I needed and to do an assessment of the business and its goals with what needed to be done. I've been very pleased with the empowerment and the authority I've been given within Schneider and the culture of this business to empower its leaders for the future."

Amy Miller, Offer Marketing Specialist at Schneider Electric

"I feel empowered just being involved in these projects. These are market-leading products that we're launching and so it's exciting to be a part of that process and a part of that team."

Susan Uthayakumar, Canada Country President for Schneider Electric

"Our ambition in terms of diversity is to have equal opportunities for everyone, everywhere and to create an environment that is safe and that is inclusive so people are able to perform their best."

Sana Siddiqui, Product Manager of Human Machine Interface and Software at Schneider Electric

"I work in an industry that's male-dominated. All of my customers or people that I deal with on day to day basis, it's mostly males. For Schneider to give an opportunity to someone like me, from a very different background, it's not just about, you know, simply a business decision or getting things done. I think Schneider is also trying to send a message. It's not a very specific demographic that is capable of doing such a job - it could be anyone. All you really need is a technical capability or interpersonal skills."

Taryn Sheldrake, Vice President of Talent Acquisiton at Schneider Electric

"Schneider Electric is a great place to work. One thing here is that we really live and breathe our values and we walk the talk. So we're committed to gender diversity, we're committed to sustainability in the environment. So, the things that you hear us talk about are things that we really do and believe in. When I think about our core values at Schneider - meaningful, inclusive, and empowered. 

"For me, I feel as though we are living and breathing those every day. There's some real strong, powerful women in leadership roles here at Schneider and that inspires me and I'm proud to be one of them. Schneider Electric is a place that I'm very proud to work."
