Women’s History Month is a time for recognizing the central role of women in U.S. history. For Cummins, it is also about highlighting the significance of diversity and inclusion. In honor of Women’s History Month, we’ve invited employees to share their personal stories, helping others to understand what this month represents, as well as the importance of an inclusive workplace year round.
Employee Highlight: Shirley Echeverria, Off-Highway Controls Group Leader
Time at Cummins: 5 years
“Women’s History Month is a time to recognize the strengths of women and embrace the diverse perspectives that women have to offer. Having a month that recognizes the importance of contributions women make to society, especially in fields such as politics and science, reinforces that you’re not limited by your gender, but how hard you are willing to work to achieve your goals. This gives hope to upcoming generations to continue to fight for what is right and never forget how far we have come. Women’s History Month is a time to focus on hope, redemption, and courage and to give recognition to the many women who deserve it!”
