“At nVent, our people and culture are differentiators. We foster a culture of inclusion, diversity, employee engagement, safety and integrity to ensure our people can do their best work. nVent invests in its people by offering a variety of development and mentorship opportunities. We also provide flexibility and benefits to help our employees care for themselves and their families.” — Lynnette Heath, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at nVent.

nVent connects and protects customers with inventive electrical solutions. With a team of more than 10,000 people at over 130 sites around the world, the global company seeks to provide tools that improve performance, lower costs, and reduce downtime.

And their global reach isn’t their only claim to fame — nVent is also a certified Great Place to Work with a goal of making their industry more diverse. As a global manufacturer, nVent is doing their part to diversify traditionally male-dominated industries such as engineering, operations, and sales. By 2025, nVent aspires to increase the representation of women in management globally by 20% compared with 2020.

Already, nVent is an organization led by women: their CEO is a woman and women hold key leadership positions throughout nVent. For instance, women make up one-third of the C-suite and one-half of the board of directors. The company was even included in the 2022 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), a modified market capitalization-weighted index that aims to track the performance of public companies committed to transparency in gender-data reporting. 

It’s clear nVent knows firsthand how the growth of women throughout their organization is critical to their success. That’s why the company wants to make their environment as welcoming and inclusive as possible for its team members and ensure that women at nVent are inspired to make a difference through their unique talents — through this, everyone can work together to help build the future of a more sustainable and electrified world.
