NEXT: Network Educate eXpand Transform

NEXT stands for Network Educate eXpand Tranform, and it is our college women’s initiative to empower and inspire young women in STEM fields. Johnson Controls is partnering with the University Society of Women Engineers (SWE) chapters from local Universities to provide students with a realistic depiction of the opportunities that the engineering profession offers via speaker series, networking opportunities, and outreach events. 

Through partnerships, we hope to create connections between and across academia and corporations, inspiring and empowering women to choose their best career path in STEM.


NEXT Goals:

  • Increase the pool of women in engineering at Johnson Controls (interns, early career hires, promotions, retention)
  • Build a community of women engineers in target markets at all stages of the career continuum

This partnership is a great example of how we need to think differently to get dramatic improvement in our diversity results. This is not just about sourcing great female engineering talent. This is also an opportunity for JCI to better understand what we need to do to be the recognized employer of choice for people choosing STEM related careers.
