At nVent, we value all dimensions of diversity, and work to make sure all voices are heard, respected and represented. In 2020, we set a goal to increase global representation of women in management by 20% by 2025. To help us make progress on this goal, we looked for partners who could help us reach innovative women leaders. Last year we began a partnership with Fairygodboss, the largest online career community for women. We quickly saw positive results and are excited to continue the partnership for a second year!

“At nVent, we are making it a priority to demonstrate that manufacturing is a place where women can grow their careers and find exciting opportunities to put their knowledge and experience to work,” said Laura Brock, nVent Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer. “We hope that women in STEM fields—whether it’s engineering, programming, finance or any other field—recognize manufacturing as a growing industry with an important role to play in the sustainable and electrified world.”

Through Fairygodboss, members can learn more about nVent and the experience our employees have. They can access exclusive content such as articles and interviews with women at all levels of nVent, including our leaders. Read some of our latest Fairygodboss stories:

What do all of these stories have in common? Inclusion, innovation, and growth. At nVent, we believe our culture is a differentiator. This culture is one of the factors that women consider when they build their careers at nVent.

  • Inclusion: We value personal connections, knowing that each person is unique and that learning from one another creates an environment where we can do our best work.
  • Innovation: We empower employees to be bold, creative thinkers. This drives engagement and high performance.
  • Growth: We are a growing, global company that promotes opportunities for employees to develop while shaping nVent’s future.

In addition to learning about the progress on our goal to increase women in management, Fairygodboss members will learn nVent is already an organization led by women. Our Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) are all women. Our gender equity leadership is gaining prestigious recognition. Fairygodboss recently profiled our CHRO Lynnette Heath.

Members of Fairygodboss will also learn about some of the significant recognitions our representation efforts have earned. For two years consecutively, we have been named to the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) and awarded “Gender Balanced” status from 50/50 Women on Boards™ because 50% of our Board of Directors positions are held by women.
