Sulzer champions the drive for gender equality

The Empowering Women in Industry Association aims to build a community and inspire the next generation of leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM). Its annual Conference and Gala celebrates the success and impact of influential female executives in different sectors, as well as providing a key opportunity to connect, educate and ultimately empower women.
