Dow has given me the opportunity to start as a young engineer in a role with relatively high responsibility through wich I could learn and develop new skills. I was given the opportunity to explore different areas inside manufactuing and work with the independencde in different types of projects to achieve my goals and the goals of the company. Lucia Borghi, Improvement Engineer

I love working for a company with so many strong women in upper management roles, especially on site. It's so empowering to see, and makes me believe that it could be a possibility for my future. I was immediately encouraged to become a member of teh WIN (Women's Innovation Network) and was invited to a networking session. It was an incredible day, with personal experiences shared by women in different roles, and it made me feel liek the challenges women sometimes face in the industry were undersood and Dow was working to overcome these. Fiona Low, Process Engineer
