3M touches virtually every part of your life. Yet you’re probably only aware of a fraction of those touch-points. With medical dressings that help wounds heal faster, reflective materials that make our roadways safer, and even stethoscopes that listen to astronauts’ heartbeats in space, our people and technology make the impossible, possible. Every day we apply our science to make your life better.
Women at 3M have the opportunity to make a difference in the world, work with the best and the brightest, grow through challenging work, and be rewarded for their efforts, all while working for a leading global company.
Here, women are encouraged to grow and learn in a nurturing, challenging and respectful environment. Through a variety of informal and formal mentoring programs and Employee Resource Networks, including our Women’s Leadership Forum, 3Mers can network and collaborate with those who share their values and interests.
With benefits such as 20 weeks of maternity leave, flexible work arrangements and support for community involvement, employees can find the balance they need to be successful in all the aspects of their lives that are important to them.
In 2017, 3M was one of three companies that won the Catalyst Award from Catalyst Inc. for its work to accelerate progress for women in the workplace. 3M was chosen for its “I’m in. Accelerating Women’s Leadership” initiative, leadership development platforms, workplace flexibility, mentoring programs and external community efforts on behalf of women. To extend these efforts even further, in 2018, 3M set a goal of doubling the pipeline of diverse talent in management to build a diverse workforce by 2025.
