“As a technology company growing our offerings in software and services, we know the importance of diversity — of both people and ideas — in creating new solutions and accelerating innovation,” said Brown. “Motorola Solutions is committed to fostering an environment and culture that thrives on the diversity of our people and their ideas.”
A cornerstone of Brown’s conversation with Pramaggiore, which was attended by Motorola Solutions employees in-person and virtually, was the importance of education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for young women and other underrepresented groups. Both Motorola Solutions and ComEd invest in STEM education as part of their respective philanthropic and corporate responsibility programs.
In addition, Motorola Solutions’ global Women’s Business Council will offer International Women’s Day activities throughout the week at locations in the U.S., U.K., Israel, Poland, Australia and Malaysia, where about 40 percent of engineers are women. Events include panel discussions, fundraising events and networking opportunities.
