Schneider Electric believes everyone can help achieve gender equality and promote women’s empowerment - and so the company acts as an agent of change to build a better world through forging gender diversity and equality.  

Supporting women in technology

Schneider Electric empowers women in technology.

Employee Astri says: "For me as a woman, I learned how to continue delivering success and moved forward in male-dominated industries. Leave the boundaries behind, dare to disrupt and finding a diversity of thought from different people are always on my agenda."

Meanhile Lucero enjoys supporting her team: “Schneider Electric gives equal opportunity to men and women to manage personal priorities and work. For my Global Supply Chain team at the Monterrey, Mexico plant, I always support and coach my team to boost their own careers without making a compromise,” she explains.  

Janine wants to see further action in diversity and inclusion: “In order for women to feel empowered and supported in their careers, I would like to see greater active involvement from senior management in Diversity and Inclusion. Let’s not just talk the talk, let’s walk the walk," she comments. 

And Sophie began her engineering career two decades ago: “20 years ago, in Istanbul, Turkey, I was one of the 6 girls out of 100 students in my class, and my first professional experience was on a construction site – I’m an engineer," she explains. 

Welcoming people from all walks of life, ages and cultures

Reniforcing its commitment to female empowerment, Schneider Electric celebrates key moments like International Women’s Day each year, across its country locations. 

"Embracing different means welcoming people from all walks of life, ages and cultures. It also means calling out bias when we see it, as we are 100% committed to inclusion," says Schneider Electric.
