Below is a quick update of the Mazzetti female workforce tracking through November 2018.
Earlier this quarter, Mazzetti launched a new Women@Mazzetti committee to support the company’s initiative of becoming one of the most female-friendly engineering firms. (Discover more about the origination of this initiative and commitment here.)
I have the privilege of leading this group, comprised of multiple Mazzetti-ites (men and women!) from different offices across the country. The committee had its first strategic planning meeting to discuss goals for 2019 (which turned out to be quite an impressive list). A resonating thought throughout the group — how can we can continue to build a supportive and inclusive culture within the company and our communities? Resulting goals, included:
- Develop robust leadership mentoring for females. Check out one story re mentoring from Leslie Jonsson, a Senior Mechanical Engineer in our Seattle office.
- Facilitate discussions on how to be better allies for each other.
- Create partnerships with other women/diversity-focused groups in the community.
- Identify a champion in each office who will advocate for those who need to be heard.
We are excited to see what this committee can accomplish in the next year!
How has your firm succeeded in building a more inclusive culture? Lessons learned? Anything you care to share, so we can improve together, we welcome your input.
