Today is International Women’s Day. Applied Companies would like to honor the resiliency of all Women and celebrate their achievements. This year’s IWD theme is #ChooseToChallenge. Applied chooses to challenge the gender gap in STEM education and careers. As a Certified Woman-Owned Small Business, we are long-time sponsors of Women in Defense, a network that provides resources for the advancement of women in all aspects of Defense, including STEM. We challenge our industry partners to make an action plan today to give back and empower women in our industry.
“Applied Companies is dedicated to ensuring equal opportunity in the workplace and encouraging the professional development of all women. One of our core company values is to empower women in STEM leadership and representation in every department from assembly to the Board of Directors as we continue to grow. “ – Betsy Klinger, Vice Chair, Board of Directors
