2021 Talent Development Highlights

Talent Development Spotlights

Empowering Women in Production

Southwire is pleased to announce that it recently graduated eight employees from the Empowering Women in Production program’s pilot cohort in partnership with Women in Manufacturing (WiM). “I’m proud to complete another successful program here at Southwire. As a Latina woman, it is an honor to accomplish goals inside this company and grow as a leader,” said Jenny Rivera, take-up operator at North Campus. “Thanks to WiM, I’ve learned that being bilingual is a strength that I can use to my advantage, and I believe that we need to encourage one another and try to push ourselves daily, no matter how big the obstacle is.”

Talent Development Programs
