At pSemi, we believe that a more diverse company leads to a more innovative company. Based on that belief, we are committed to encouraging and supporting women engineers through a variety of initiatives.
The inaugural launch of our Women in Engineering Internship Program, which took place over 10 weeks this summer, was a resounding success! During this program, five students gained real-world experience both in the lab and through planned networking activities. Our interns learned about RFIC design and development, automation, characterization, Wi-Fi, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Throughout the program, the women were mentored by pSemi managers and participated in other professional development activities such as public speaking and presentation workshops. Interns also enjoyed several social and networking events including a San Diego Padres baseball game, a pizza-making party, a hike at beautiful Torrey Pines, an escape room activity, and a final farewell picnic with fellow interns, managers and teammates.
pSemi looks forward to hosting and expanding our Women in Engineering Internship Program in future years.
Another pSemi inclusion-focused initiative is our Female Engineers and Managers (FEM) program. Designed to advance the careers of women who excel in STEM and management, the FEM program sharpens skills in the areas of negotiation, business acumen, public speaking and executive presence. The upcoming fall series includes presentations by pSemi women leaders about how they carved their paths to management in the semiconductor industry.
Once again, pSemi will be at this year’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) conference, WE21. This annual event is the largest and most prestigious conference for women in engineering and technology. The pSemi team will have an in-person booth in Indianapolis October 21–22 and will also host a virtual booth on October 26. We invite you to connect with our team at WE21 and learn more about what makes pSemi a great place to work.
