In recognition of International Women in Engineering Day (June 23), we salute our female colleagues in engineering roles across the North America Business. From our mines to our manufacturing sites and our offices in between, we tip our ‘hard hats’ to all our women engineers working and excelling in engineering roles, and for inspiring future generations of female talent to enter the profession.
“Women are so important to the field of engineering and Mosaic is extremely lucky to have many wonderful engineers who are women,” says Kerrie C., Vice President – Human Resources, North America Operations. “Without them, we would miss out on many different ideas and creativity that diversity of thought and perspective brings to the table.”
Next Generation of Female Engineers
This year’s awareness day theme is “Shape the World.” Shaping our workforce with more diversity and inclusion and gender equality has and continues to be a priority for Mosaic. And it all starts with building pipelines to future generations of female talent.
The outreach by our HR Recruitment team and Mosaic contributions to support societal organizations spans far and wide. Mosaic is a long-standing supporter of Society of Women Engineers (SWE) groups at the University of Florida and the University of South Florida.
Noteworthy Collegiate SWE programs we proudly support in Florida:
- University of Florida SWE’s “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day” which welcomes middle school female students to visit the UF campus and tour various engineering labs and learn more about engineering roles.
Each year, Mosaic also offers in-house internships (co-ops) for approximately 40 chemical, mechanical, mining and electrical engineering students (males and females) to provide hands-on training and help further their interests in engineering roles at Mosaic.
