I Am #HeForShe: Cummins Engineer, Kevin Matiko
These Cummins employees have each taken the UN's #HeForShe pledge, joining over 1.3 million individuals who are taking action to create a gender-equal world. We'll feature one profile a day starting Monday, March 6, 2017 through Friday, March 10, 2017.
Kicking off our #HeForShe profile series is Kevin Matiko, a Cummins engineer with HMLD Off-highway for combustion performance and emissions. Kevin is in his third year with Cummins.
Q. What is your motivation/reason to be an advocate for women and gender equality?
"I support the HeForShe movement because I have been a beneficiary of tremendous support from great women in my life. This is my little contribution to women."
Q. Do you have any words of advice/wisdom/encouragement for women in the workplace?
"I would encourage women in the workplace to stay spirited and continue pursuing their dreams because this movement is our commitment to that cause."
Q. What are some ways that men can be champions and advocate for gender equality?
"One of the ways that men can support this cause is to talk and listen to women about their career goals and then provide or guide them to resources that help them fulfill those goals."
