United Technologies Corporation recently signed onto Paradigm for Parity, which is a coalition of business leaders dedicated to addressing the corporate leadership gender gap. The pledge signifies a commitment to position women and men to have equal opportunity. Our ultimate goal is to achieve full gender parity by 2030, with a near-term goal of women holding at least 30% of senior roles.
Experienced professionals sometimes take a career break for a variety of personal and professional reasons. Returning to work after an absence of two or more years can seem daunting. To help with this transition, UTC’s Re-Empower Program is designed specifically to help bring that knowledge, experience and creativity back to the workforce. In 2018 UTC formally joined the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) pledging to hire, develop, and retain Military Spouses.
Our success as a global technology leader relies on their unique talents, perspectives and experiences – and our goal is to ensure our workplace actively fosters respect, inclusion and opportunities for all employees. UTC is All In for creating an extraordinary future.

UTC is committed to a culture of diversity that promotes inclusion and workplace equality for everyone. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) offer career development programs, networking opportunities, mentoring programs, are involved in their communities, and provide a voice to the company regarding issues pertinent to a range of topics. The ERGs have a collective mission of supporting our efforts to attract, develop and retain top talent globally. They are instrumental in assisting with the design of mentoring programs, retention initiatives, philanthropic outreach, and important policy and guideline recommendations.
UTC has over 100 ERGs across nine affinities globally. These affinities include: Generational, LGBT, African-American, Hispanic, Asian-American, Ability, Military/Veteran, Professional and women.
Our women-focused ERGs provide professional development, mentoring and an opportunity to build community. For example, the mission of the Finance Women’s Forum is to advance and promote women within finance. As our largest ERG, it also boasts one of the longest standing mentoring programs in the organization. Based on their work and voice, UTC’s Finance organization now has more women in very senior leadership roles than ever before.
