Two Whirlpool Corp. Employees Reflect on the Role of Women Engineers on International Women in Engineering Day 2022

Whirlpool Corporation

International Women in Engineering Day, founded by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), celebrates its ninth year on June 23. It’s a day to profile the best, brightest and bravest women in engineering—the inventors and innovators who dare to be part of the solution and are helping to build a brighter future in their roles as engineers. At Whirlpool Corp., women in engineering bring a diverse perspective to innovation and improving life at home for all. One way the company fosters its culture of innovation is through developing people in technical career paths and providing opportunities in engineering. One of those opportunities is the Whirlpool Engineering Rotational Leadership Development (WERLD) Program. For WERLD engineers Jeni Tyler, a senior manager in laundry, and Erica Pinto, sustainability analyst, there weren’t many female engineers to look up to early on in their careers. Data as of June 2021 shows that only 16.5 percent of engineers are women, according to the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). “When I was getting my undergrad, it was very common to be one of the only ones, so I was used to it,” Tyler says. “Now, I am more aware when there’s a bunch of women in the room. I was in one meeting that happened to have all women, and I said, ‘Wow, this has never happened. This isn’t a Society of Women Engineers meeting or a Whirlpool Women’s Network ERG meeting. This is a business meeting,’ and I joked that we needed to record this moment.” Pinto says for her, choosing a career path in engineering felt like a risk, since she didn’t see many other women in the industry. She added that women in engineering play an important role in building a community to lift each other up. “I see more examples of women engineers around me at Whirlpool Corporation than what I was expecting, and that keeps me going,” Pinto says. Imagining the future “There are so many rewarding opportunities for making an impact on the world, and engineering is a great career to do that,” Tyler says. “My hope for the future is to continue seeing more women in leadership roles and keep building a support structure for others to come behind them and lead.” Making an impact in the careers of other women is one future goal for Pinto. She says another part is making an impact on the planet around us. “I want to go home and see the impact I make at work,” Pinto says, “and continue to improve life at home for people and our planet, making sure all of our products remain inclusive of different types of homes as we innovate. That way, consumers can rest assured that when they interact with our products, they’re not impacting our world in a negative way.” As a working parent, Tyler hopes to see more innovations in connectivity to help consumers become more and more proactive in tackling their chores. “To me, improving life at home is making life easier, like using connectivity,” Tyler says. “Connected appliances help me manage tasks. In laundry for example, notifications remind me to move my wet clothes from my washer to my dryer. I hope in the future, we will keep seeing innovations that will continue to help consumers become less involved in daily tasks and get them done even faster.” To learn more about working at Whirlpool Corp. visit whirlpoolcareers.com.

U.S. Energy Secretary Granholm Praises Progress on State Pier at Future Offshore Wind Turbine Staging and Assembly Facility

Ørsted

NEW LONDON, Conn. July 1, 2022 /3BL Media/ – Joint venture partners Ørsted and Eversource joined U.S. Representative Joe Courtney in welcoming U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm today to tour the construction progress at State Pier in New London. Ørsted and Eversource are working with the State of Connecticut, Connecticut Port Authority, and Gateway Terminal to transform State Pier into a world-class, state-of-the-art, heavy-lift marine terminal and future offshore wind hub. The tour also included Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, U.S. Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Commissioner Katie Dykes, New London Mayor Michael Passero, Connecticut State Building Trades Council President Keith Brothers, representatives from the Connecticut Port Authority and Kiewit Infrastructure Co., and other state and local officials.   Starting in Q1 2023, State Pier will play a vital role in the fight against climate change, supporting wind turbine staging and assembly for Ørsted and Eversource's portfolio of projects in the Northeast, including South Fork Wind (currently under construction), Revolution Wind, and Sunrise Wind. Collectively, these projects will provide enough clean energy to power more than one million homes in the Northeast. The redevelopment of State Pier is expected to create more than 400 jobs, including for Connecticut's building trades, by the project's completion early next year.

"State Pier is a critical part of our plan to develop 1.7 gigawatts of renewable energy in the Northeast, providing enough clean energy for more than a million American homes. It is also a tremendous driver of well-paying jobs and local investment, which we witnessed firsthand today."  "I want to thank Secretary Granholm for joining us for today's tour – we wouldn't be where we are today without your hard work and the Biden administration's vision of 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030," said David Ortiz, Head of Market Affairs for New England of Ørsted Offshore North America. "State Pier will help us achieve that goal while also being a centerpiece for the industry's advancement in the region, which positively impacts our local communities, local businesses, and local workers. We look forward to continuing our work with all of our partners to realize our vision, as our investments in clean energy deliver real economic benefits and jobs."  In total, Ørsted and Eversource are contributing $77.5 million towards the cost of the State Pier redevelopment project, plus $20 million in lease payments over 10 years once on the site.
