Making STEM Careers Accessible to Everyone

As local students returned to school in the U.S., Cummins leaders recently joined policymakers to discuss a question plaguing industries around the world: how can society prepare and encourage more children, especially girls, to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and manufacturing?

Women make up approximately 20 percent of engineering undergraduates in the United States, and careers in these fields often are not even considered by younger students. Without awareness of the potential of these career paths, these numbers are unlikely to improve.

Cummins Named to DiversityInc Top 50 Companies List

Cummins ranked No. 21 on the 2017 annual list, which included more than 1,000 participating companies.

“The more we grow and expand globally, the more important it is that we attract and develop employees from around the world who have the knowledge and skills to work effectively in the markets in which we do business,” said Executive Director, Global Diversity and Right Environment, Kelley Bertoux Creveling.

“We’re at our best when we fully include those unique perspectives, experiences and languages - truly leveraging the power of diversity and inclusion.”

Talking Cummins Truck Targets Future Engineers


But talking trucks are cool whether it’s an 18-wheeler heading down the highway or a kid’s STEM challenge built around the kitchen table.  It didn’t take long for the two men to agree it was the perfect idea for a Cummins-themed challenge on the popular website

Virtual Reality Helps Cummins See the Big Picture

In some ways, the cave at the Cummins Technical Center (CTC) in Columbus, Indiana (USA) is aptly named. Tucked away in the basement and dark much of the time, its inhabitants seem to prefer large, dark glasses, even when the lights are dim. 

But some pretty high tech stuff is happening in the CAVE and at similar locations across Cummins where engineers are using virtual reality to get a one-to-one perspective on engines and components, often before anything is built.

Cummins U.K. Finds New Ways to Shrink Carbon Footprint

The event featured a group of ambitious entrepreneurs, each ready to make their pitch to a panel of business leaders with a lot on the line. But this wasn’t a television show. It was the Cummins Environmental Gateway project.

Cummins leaders in the U.K. invited suppliers in to pitch new ideas that could help the company reach its goals for reducing water and energy use and producing less waste. The result was more than 100 submissions, 28 finalists and 12 winning ideas that will now be tested at Cummins’ sites around the country.

Cummins Makes Ethical Companies List for a 10th Year

“Over the last 11 years, we have seen an impressive shift in societal expectations, aggressive emergence of new laws and regulation and geopolitical swings that can further disrupt the balance,” said Ethisphere CEO Timothy Erblich. “We have also seen how companies honored as the World’s Most Ethical respond to these challenges. They invest in their local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and inclusion and focus on ‘long term-ism’ as a sustainable business advantage.”

Challenge Brings Environmental Benefits to Cummins Communities

The scene should have been picturesque: A stream running through a suburban village near Beijing, China, located not far from two national parks and reservoirs. Except it was anything but idyllic.

A growing population meant many private sewage pipelines discharged waste into the stream. For the 25 million people touched by the local watershed, that meant the increased possibility of waterborne diseases. The sewage disposal also meant that surface water became blocked and soil erosion was prevalent, endangering residents’ homes if a flood came.
