“Diversity at all levels of our workplace is critical, helping us to see different perspectives and bring new ideas to any discussion,” said Dr. Hari Narayanan, managing director of Penang operations, Motorola Solutions Malaysia. “This definitely helps us to move towards our vision of becoming a premier design center, in order to provide our customers with advanced communications solutions.”
During the past 10 years, the Motorola Solutions Foundation has provided more than $45 million in education grants through its Innovation Generation program, which supports science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education-focused initiatives. Throughout 2017, Motorola Solutions’ global Women’s Business Council will continue to offer female-focused activities in the United States, United Kingdom, Israel, Poland, Australia and Malaysia.
In Australia, the council enjoys close ties with Females in Technology & Telecommunications, a non-profit organization through which employees can participate in tailored mentoring and development programs, as well as regular networking events. Software coding workshops are organized in partnership with the Society of Women Engineers in Malaysia to introduce software programming to young girls.
