ABB’s commitment to solving some of the biggest global challenges of our time is founded on a culture of diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity.
This culture is critical to our business success and relies on our exceptional people who work every day towards this endeavour.
We welcome and celebrate individual differences, which is why encouraging and promoting social progress is a key element of our Sustainability Strategy 2030.
These values also underpin our partnership with the FIA Girls on Track program, which seeks to empower the next generation of women by encouraging them into STEM careers. Using the exceptional platform provided by ABB Formula E, FIA Girls On Track runs workshops at selected races through the season, to both inspire and show practical support for girls and young women considering careers in motorsport or other engineering-related fields.
The program helps to drive progress in female diversity and equality, building a brighter and more diverse future.
As part of our partnership with FIA Girls on Track, our complementary video series showcases the varied and influential roles held by women working in ABB Formula E.
The videos highlight their backgrounds and routes into motorsport, who or what inspired them, challenges faced and overcome and their advice to other young women looking to follow a similar path.
For the second year running, ABB will support FIA Girls on Track on-event. The program offers girls aged 12 to 18 the opportunity to explore different aspects of the motorsport industry through a set of activities and workshops. ABB is again running a workshop focused on ABB Robotics, during which girls will be taught basic robot programming theory. This season ABB is adding an additional workshop from its Electrification business which will showcase ABB’s charging technology.
