MILWAUKEE, March 22, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Rockwell Automation’s Professional Women’s Council (PWC) is one of its longest-running employee resource groups. Launched in the mid-1990s in Milwaukee, the ERG has grown to more than 26 chapters worldwide – mirroring Rockwell’s global growth.

PWC’s mission is aligned with Rockwell’s diversity, equity and inclusion goals. The ERG focuses on professional development and mentoring, networking, and corporate awareness of women’s issues. Globally, all PWC chapters have the same mission – but may do things very differently based on member needs and local culture and issues.

“Depending on where you are in the world, women are fighting very different battles, whether that’s breaking barriers for the presence of women in male spaces or encouraging men to be allies,” says PWC Milwaukee Chapter President and Rockwell Customer Advocacy Program Manager Nicole Bulanda.

As part of its March programming for Women’s History Month, Rockwell has produced a series of videos, including this one in which Rockwell EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) employees share how they’re committed to the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, #BreakTheBias.

Rockwell’s Becky House, senior vice president, Chief People and Legal Officer; Gina Claxton, president of the Americas; and Veena Lakkundi, senior vice president, Corporate Strategy & Development, also hosted a panel a discussion on the Break the Bias theme.
