Caterpillar supports International Women's Day

Caterpillar is committed to a diverse and inclusive environment that values and respects its global employees. Their vision to continually develop the Best Team - to build innovative solutions and impact the people and communities they serve - goes hand in hand with their pledge to Press for Progress and drive toward gender equality.


Caterpillar is proud to support and empower women who play extraordinary roles within the company, with customers, and in their communities. Caterpillar fosters an inclusive environment and believes that diversity leads to innovation, which makes them a stronger, more successful company. In recognition of their global and diverse team of women, Caterpillar is celebrating and highlighting ways they are pressing for progress.


Men have an important role in the fight for gender equality. Gender partnership at work requires a commitment within the corporate culture as well as with individual employees - specifically men. See how men at Caterpillar are pledging to #PressforProgress and become allies for the women in their lives.


The need for qualified manufacturing professionals increases each year. To inspire the next generation of Caterpillar employees, we need to engage girls early in their education and show them how their innovative ideas can make an impact on the world. See how Caterpillar is empowering the next generation of women in STEM.
