National Women in Engineering Day


​In honor of International Women in Engineering Day, get to know three women on the Transport Solutions Engineering and Technology team! ​

​Sunday, June 23 was International Women in Engineering Day, which aims to raise the profile of women in engineering and highlight career opportunities for women in the industry. Here at Thermo King and Ingersoll Rand, we have a longstanding commitment to building a progressive, diverse and inclusive environment where people of all backgrounds and genders are treated with respect. 

“Diversity is highly valued on the Thermo King Engineering team. Not only does diversity improve effectiveness and productivity, it drives creativity and new insights. We also observe higher satisfaction in our work when our teams are more diverse," said George Wan, vice president of Engineering and Technology for Transport Solutions North America and EMEA. "International Women in Engineering Day is an opportunity to celebrate the diversity on our team – and build upon the work we are doing to remove barriers and increase access to engineering careers, like the local expansion of the ReLaunch program that was recently announced.”

In honor of International Women in Engineering Day, we are spotlighting some of our own female engineers within Transport Solutions North America and EMEA. Click through the profiles below to learn more about these three women and their engineering careers!
