Company Remains Committed to Diversity and Inclusion
PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON),
driving energy efficiency innovations, today announced that it was named
to the Arizona Republic’s prestigious 2016
Who’s Who in Business list, as one of the Top 10 Publicly Held
Arizona Companies. Additionally, two of the company’s executives were
listed among the state’s highest ranking women—Debbie Brogan, vice
president of corporate program management, and Kimberly Appleton, vice
president of global sales operations.
ON Semiconductor has long remained committed to diversity and inclusion,
recognizing that the company is at its strongest when it effectively
draws upon the wide variety of experiences, knowledge, culture, customs
and backgrounds from all employees and leaders. Brogan and Appleton have
been instrumental in helping to advance this diversity of thinking,
which is a key part of the company’s core values of respect, integrity
and initiative. In particular, they launched ON Semiconductor’s Women’s
Leadership Initiative in 2014.
Since its inception, the Women’s Leadership Initiative has grown to a
fully inclusive, global program that has been strengthened, fostered and
led by Brogan and Appleton. They sponsored this corporate led
initiative’s expansion outside of North America, with kickoff events in
Europe and plans for further growth in Asia. Brogan and Appleton were
inspired to launch this initiative because their careers have grown
through similar programs and the mentoring of women leaders.
“As a company, we are honored to be named to the 2016 Who’s Who in
Business,” said Appleton.
“We are also personally proud to represent our company’s diversity, by
being listed among Arizona’s highest ranking women executives,” added
Brogan. “Our goal for ON Semiconductor’s Women’s Leadership Initiative
is to facilitate networking for a diverse and inclusive group that
promotes our company’s core values, while providing the tools needed to
succeed in today’s business world.”
ON Semiconductor recently expanded on these efforts by launching a
Diversity and Inclusion Initiative in the U.S. This initiative is
sponsored and governed by the company’s Senior Leader Diversity and
Inclusion Council, which will provide leadership, direction and support.
The council’s focus areas include workplace inclusion, workforce
diversity and community partnerships.
To advance this important initiative, the council will sponsor
additional Affinity Network Groups. These groups will help facilitate
networking and cultural awareness, encourage recruitment, and provide
employee development and retention along with increased collaboration
and innovation. ON Semiconductor’s next official Affinity Network Group,
building on the Women’s Leadership Initiative, is called STEM UP, which
stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math for
Under-represented Populations. The company will establish additional
affinity network groups to support and develop employees, and to respond
to changing business requirements. For more information, visit https://laprensafl.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/brd8084-d.pdf.
