For two decades, the Women's Network (WN) has provided professional development opportunities for the many thousands of women across the globe working at GE and to advance their careers. Through our events and scholarship programs for women, we're also helping GE to build its future workforce.
GE’s Women’s Network (WN) is all about growth. It exists for the nearly 70,000 women working at GE to cultivate their leadership skills, business practices, personal contacts, and career opportunities. By engaging and developing our membership in areas such as technology, operations, and commercial roles, we are promoting growth leaders who will ensure both their career success and GE’s growth as a company.
The WN was created in 1997 to attract, develop, inspire, and retain female professional talent. This effort includes sharing the experience, best practices, and knowledge of successful women role models: the executive team represents a diverse group of women from each of GE’s businesses and critical corporate functions. Today, the rapidly growing WN has evolved into a worldwide organization of more than 160 hubs in 60 countries that helps thousands of women around the world.
The WN has several initiatives aimed at growing GE’s female population in critical roles including Women in Technology, Commercial Women, and Women in Operations. These groups hold many training and networking events throughout the year.
Partnership With the Society of Women Engineers GE’s WN has been funding scholarships through the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) for over 10 years, and reached the $1 million mark this year in total donated funds supporting female engineering students. In 2016, WN provided 43 scholarships in the amount of $5,000 each through the SWE scholarship fund.
GE Girls In 2011, the WN launched the GE Girls program to excite and retain middle school girls' interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Thirteen GE locations will host camps across the U.S. this year. To date, the program has had a positive impact on 700 girls.
WN Events Since 2003, GE has been holding its annual Leading and Learning conference, inviting female customers and GE leaders for a day and a half agenda packed with powerful speakers and insights. In 2017, the WN is celebrating its 20th anniversary with events throughout the year.
