Our collaborations


For more than 10 years ABB has been a partner of Femtec. Femtec GmbH was founded in 2001 by EAF Berlin and TU Berlin with the aim of connecting female STEM students in business and science and supporting them in their personal career development. The goal is to develop young female talent for STEM professions: Femtec qualifies excellent STEM talents already in school and offers determined female students excellent career prospects with the Career-Building Scholarship.


SWE is a global organization which strives to empower women in their careers as engineers and leaders while demonstrating the value that diversity and inclusion (D&I) provides to engineering and technology professions. ABB is proud to be a part of SWE’s Corporate Partnership Council (CPC), which annually sponsors over 120 employees with global SWE memberships, and subsequently supports SWE’s mission towards gender parity in the workplace, a goal that aligns closely with ABB’s own D&I strategy.
