Women in STEM

Join our global network

We’ve started our diversity and inclusion efforts a while ago with our “Side by Side” initiative; we believed then and we strongly advocate every day that people create companies and its own values and stories.

Being a more supportive and inclusive company also means becoming a better and more performing one. This is our everyday mission for a long-term plan. As a company we have defined targets to achieve by 2030 in the area of social sustainability.

One of our goals is to hire and develop +500 women in a fully dedicated STEM program by 2030 and inspire the new generation of women to pursue a career in technical and scientific roles.

Michiko Matsusaka Product Development Manager, LATAM

“Generating an impact and global bounding towards diversity and gender equality was the main driver for starting my career within the commercial area here at Prysmian. During my first 2 years, I started to support the Nicaraguan and Caribbean countries which led me to focus my interest on customer delight and service quality. I have been eager to develop my career with an open and global mindset and, few months ago, I took on a new role within the Product Development team for Central America and the Caribbean. I can certainly state that Prysmian has giving me the opportunity to innovate, optimize, and continue adding value to my career while supporting our customers, theirs markets and the business organization as a whole.”

Marquesha McVea Senior Process Engineer, Lexington SC, North America

“I became interested in science and technology at a very young age. I loved math and understanding how things worked and came together. During my career, I had the opportunity to work at different production sites, in Jackson, Tennessee, then in Marshall, Texas. The overall experience has been great. I developed my technical skills and made a lot of wonderful connections within the company. My suggestion to those women who would like to pursue a career in STEM is to do not place yourself in a box: remain open to different ideas and be ready to embrace new opportunities.”

“If I had to find a keyword to inspire women who would like to pursue a career in STEM it would be transformation. Ask yourself questions, try new experiences, do everything to get to know yourself and the others. Finding a purpose in life translates into a more fulfilled life for you and some inspiration for those around you.”

“To describe my program in one word: discovering. For those who want to start a career in STEM I would suggest not to believe people who tell you, that you are not capable of doing what you want to do. Believe in yourself. There is nothing impossible for those with enough will power”
