Cultivating diversity around the world
Our diversity strategy is supported by strong community and employee engagement programs that encourage students from different cultures, backgrounds and geographic locations to continue to learn and grow in their careers. In 2011 alone, we granted more than $400,000 through the Praxair Foundation to organizations promoting diversity.
- Tech Savvy
Praxair inspires middle school girls to pursue careers in STEM fields through the Tech Savvy program, an initiative by the American Association of University Women, Buffalo Branch, held at State University of New York in Buffalo.
- Women in Welding
Praxair partners with several industry associations to further develop women in the gas and welding industry. As the title sponsor for a kick-off reception of this initiative, Praxair and its leaders invited others attending the annual convention of the Gas and Welding Distributors Association to get involved.
