Rock­well Au­toma­tion recog­nised by SWE

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

The So­ci­ety of Women En­gi­neers (SWE) recog­nised the Rock­well Au­toma­tion In­sider Risk Team with the Global Team Lead­er­ship award for its im­pact on the So­ci­ety and the en­gi­neer­ing com­mu­nity. Dawn Cap­pelli, vice pres­i­dent and chief in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity of­fi­cer at Rock­well Au­toma­tion, ac­cepted the award in Philadel­phia at WE16, SWE’s an­nual con­fer­ence, dur­ing the for­mal awards ban­quet in late Novem­ber.

The Global Team Lead­er­ship award gives recog­ni­tion for a ge­o­graph­i­cally di­verse team that makes out­stand­ing tech­ni­cal con­tri­bu­tions in the field of en­gi­neer­ing and tech­ni­cal man­age­ment, demon­strat­ing in­no­va­tive think­ing to over­come global chal­lenges. It is pre­sented an­nu­ally to a team with women in tech­ni­cal lead­er­ship roles that meets or ex­ceeds project ob­jec­tives.

“At Rock­well Au­toma­tion, we have built a world- class, global, cross- func­tional team that is as pas­sion­ate as I am about pro­tect­ing our com­pany and our hard­work­ing em­ploy­ees,” said Cap­pelli.

The award also rec­og­nizes the con­tin­u­ing ded­i­ca­tion of Rock­well Au­toma­tion to SWE’s mis­sion – striv­ing to high­light the im­pact and im­por­tance of women in en­gi­neer­ing across the globe, lead­ing by ex­am­ple and demon­strat­ing that a ca­reer in en­gi­neer­ing can be a ful­fill­ing, re­ward­ing pur­suit for women of any back­ground.

“The in­di­vid­u­als ac­knowl­edged in this year’s awards pro­gram have made a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on their com­mu­nity, as well as the en­gi­neer­ing and tech­nol­ogy com­mu­nity as a whole,” said Jessica Ran­now, pres­i­dent, SWE. “These lead­ers are the ones who make it pos­si­ble to re­main a cat­a­lyst for change as we work to­gether to em­power women in STEM and close the gen­der gap in en­gi­neer­ing.”
