International Women’s Day, March 8, 2021, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The theme for 2021 is #ChooseToChallenge.
ABB’s CEO Björn Rosengren speaks with Heidi Robertson, ABB’s head of Diversity and Inclusion, about International Women’s Day and the importance of gender equality.
ABB has taken concrete steps to foster inclusion and equality in our company with our Global Diversity & Inclusion Strategy 2030, launched last year. With the CEO as the executive sponsor for gender diversity at ABB, this strategy includes a plan to double the number of women in senior management positions worldwide over the next 10 years.
To celebrate International Women’s Day we highlight a few of the many talented and successful women at ABB through a series of videos.
They share their stories, both the successes and the difficulties, with the aim to educate and inspire, as well as challenge.
