ABB is proud to announce the launch of its new film series: Unstoppable. This series aims to promote diversity and profile three remarkable female leaders in the mining, pulp and paper, and metals industries.
“We’re not doing well enough to ensure diversity in our industries and know there are many dynamic career paths open to women,” said Joanne Woo, Global Head of Communications, Process Industries, ABB. “This is why we’re proud to launch the Unstoppable film series, which showcases the incredible achievements of women in industry.”
“The adage holds true: if you can see it, you can be it. Raising the visibility of women in industry is vital in breaking down gender stereotypes and showcasing role models. Through our series we aim to ignite a spark that will encourage others to join the movement towards a more diverse and inclusive workplace.”
“At ABB, we believe that diversity is a key driver of innovation and progress, and we are committed to promoting equal opportunities for all,” said Joachim Braun, President of Process Industries, ABB. “Our target is to double the representation of women in senior management positions at ABB by 2030.”
“Leadership must take responsibility for driving change in diversity and inclusion. It is not only a moral imperative but a business necessity. Leaders must actively work to hire, advance and support women in the workplace, and create a culture that empowers them to succeed.”
“Being unstoppable is not about never facing obstacles, but rather about finding the courage to overcome them. I hope that by sharing my story, I can inspire other women to pursue their dreams and break down barriers in their own industries,” said Marjorie Boles, Chief Information Officer at Sappi and featured leader in the Unstoppable film series.
“Unstoppable is designed to be more than a film series. It is a call to action to drive greater diversity and inclusion in the workplace and an encouragement to others to follow in the footsteps of these incredible women. ABB invites everyone to join in the conversation and help create a more inclusive and diverse world,” said Joanne Woo.
