Participating in the HCL Technologies #SheInspires  campaign, Merck & Co. Executive Director, MSD Global Animal Health Manufacturing IT, Ineke Schreuder, discusses her impressive career.

An extrovert who enjoys working and interacting with people from various backgrounds, cultures and ages, Ineke is also a member and sponsor of a number of Employee Business Resource Groups including Next Gen Network, Asia Pacific Association and the Merck Women's Network.

Studying mathematics and science by chance at Nijmegen University, Ineke found a new love for technology and people. 

Ineke was one of only three girls out of 300 students in her university course, and went on to oversee 28 manufacturing sites for Merck Healthcare.

Making her team shine

Ineke also shares her mantra for success in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

"My management philosophy is 'make my team shine'. Make sure I'm there to support them. Make sure I take out all the issues that they might experience. Make sure they have a great network to work with - and make them shine," explains Ineke.

"You can be everything in your life. You can do everything as long as you commit to it and go for it... Nothing ever stopped me from trying to achieve what I wanted to achieve. Do the current job as good as you can .. Make sure you have a netwok with you. Go for it."

Encouraging diversity in the workplace 

As a future oriented organization and a corporate citizen, HCL Technologies aims to be at the forefront of encouraging diversity. One way of achieving this is to get more women to choose an education and career in the STEM fields. To facilitate this, HCL Technologies believes the presence of female role models plays a key role. 

#SheInspires captures the life stories of women who have blazed a trail in STEM and HCL is hopeful that with these stories, it will help inspire the next generation of women leaders in STEM.
