Mentoring

At Sikorsky, we have employees involved in mentoring programs in our surrounding community. For example, many of our engineers are engaged with local high schools mentoring the next generation of engineers through the FIRST robotics program.

FIRST ROBOTICS

Every year, Sikorsky Engineering employees devote their time and energy to support the 2011 FIRST Robotics FRC Connecticut Regional Competition and Florida com-petitions.

Girls and Technology Expo

Sikorsky Engineering Diversity team members represented Sikorsky at the 8th Annual 2011 Girls and Technology Expo at Housatonic Community College. About 125 area middle school girls and their teachers attended.

Take Your Child to Work Day

SGH-PA welcomed 25 children of employees during “Take Your Child to Work Day 2011.” As an introduction to the ACE DIVE concept, the kids were challenged to describe the “getting-ready- for-school” process and to identify ways to “mistake-proof” the process to ensure that they always arrive on time.

MIELEC PROMOTES EHS CULTURE

Sikorsky employees in Mielec met with local technician school students on to discuss environment, health and safety topics including environmental protection policy, employees safety, and production information. The team promoted PZL as a safe place to work. This meeting was the first of its kind and visits to other schools are being planned.

Mentoring Girl Scouts

The SGH-PA Engineering department was asked by the Girl Scouts of America in conjunction with the American Helicopter Museum to support a new program called Women in Aerospace & Technology. The program consisted of six classroom activities and a plant tour for the 41 girls from a local troop.

Aerostructures Product Center Employees Judge Science Fair Entries

Eight Aerostructures Product Center employees were judges for the science fair at Geraldine Johnson School in Bridgeport, Conn. Participants representing Operations, Quality, Engineering, and Strategic Sourcing participated. The event was well received, and the engagement of the students and the judges was second to none. Geraldine Johnson herself attended. Opened in August 2008, Geraldine W. Johnson School was named for the lifelong Bridgeport resident who became the city's first female and African American principal and the first female and African American superintendent.
