Our commitment to valuing inclusion and gender equality.
Projects Division takes seriously into account the commitment that Prysmian, through Social Ambition | Prysmian Group, supports in pursuing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which aim at promoting strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
In this scenario, particular importance is assigned to the objectives that point at recognizing the need for diversity, inclusion and gender equality at all levels; Projects Division is committed to empowering more women to pursue careers with Prysmian in technical and scientific roles.
An example is Katerina Schmid’s experience: A female leadership success story in logistics | Prysmian Group
Prysmian Group Logistics expert Kateryna Schmid is responsible for the delivery and interim storage as well as later delivery to the construction site of 470 km of underground cables for the Nothern part of SuedLink project, which is crucial for Germany’s successful energy transition. She joined Prysmian in 2020, moving to Würzburg, where Prysmian had set up one of the three project offices needed for the job (the other two are in Bayreuth and Wuppertal).
Kateryna persevered, acquired the necessary expertise and constantly improved her skills. After successfully completing that project, she sought out new challenges, and found exactly what she was looking for at Prysmian.
"I think it's great to own a central function in the project as a knowledge carrier. The daily exchange with so many partners involved is an exciting challenge. The technical topics also excite me. I'm constantly improving my knowledge about how the cables are created and how they are further developed,” Kateryna said
