FARMINGTON, Conn., Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether it's taking a career break to raise children or care for a loved one, life has many turns. Yet when it's time to return to work, it's not always easy to re-enter the workforce. To ease that transition, United Technologies Corporation (UTC) is introducing the Re-Empower Program designed to reignite careers.
UTC's Re-Empower Program, in partnership with the Society of Women Engineers and iRelaunch, is for mid-career professionals who have taken two or more years away from work due to childcare, eldercare or career change. The paid, 16-week session will begin in January 2018 and is open to U.S.-based professionals with at least five years of experience. Participants will receive mentoring, coaching, and training from across United Technologies and its business units, and will be eligible for full-time employment upon successful completion of the program and based on performance.
"We're always looking for the best talent, innovators and leaders. The Re-Empower Program is about reaching those people in a new way, tapping into their expertise and building upon their careers," said Dr. J. Michael McQuade, Senior Vice President, Science and Technology. "The first cohort will be dedicated to engineering, digital and tech professionals, building a talent pipeline and enabling us to reach an untapped pool of experienced talent."
The Re-Empower Program is just part of UTC's effort to increase gender parity among leadership by 2030. Earlier this year, the company joined the Paradigm for Parity coalition and committed to a five-step plan to make that vision a reality.
