Women make up half of the total U.S. college-educated workforce, yet represent only 28% of the science and engineering workforce and hold only about a quarter of the jobs in automotive manufacturing.

To connect talented women and men within the automotive and other tech-reliant industries, Magna and DuPont will host the Women of Inforum@CES event at the 2022 show to showcase and support the work of Inforum, a nonprofit dedicated to accelerating the careers of women and building talent initiatives at companies.

 

The reception will be 4-6 p.m. PST January 6 at the Magna Booth #5528, West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

 

“Women represent an important but underrepresented part of the automotive workforce and in STEM fields overall. We, along with our partners, are working to rectify this,” said Terry Barclay, president and CEO of Inforum. “CES represents an excellent opportunity to tap into the talented women and men in these growing fields and help them make the connections needed to advance and elevate their careers.

 

“This event will bring together corporate partners, our members, participants in our AutomotiveNEXT initiative, and others who are invested in building the best talent pipelines through workplaces that value diversity and inclusion.”  

 

“We are proud to support events like Inforum@CES which give us an opportunity to bring talented people together focused on further strengthening our industry," said Eric Wilds, chief sales and marketing officer. "Sharing best practices and collaborating with one another helps all of us advance diversity, equity and...


...inclusion when building the next generation talent pipeline at all levels.”

“DuPont recognizes that diversity, equity and inclusion must translate to all levels of business---from the top to the shop floor. Diversity of people as well as thought are what drives innovation,” said Kimberly Markiewicz, VP, chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer. “Through our work with Inforum and AutomotiveNEXT, DuPont is committed to recognizing, empowering and embracing the contributions of women in the workforce. It’s not a short journey, and we all have a role to play.”
