As we prepare to welcome 2019, I find it important to reflect on some of the key industry issues of 2018 as they provide a prelude to the focal-points and challenges our industry is sure to experience in the New Year.
On this International Women's Day, Babcock Laboratories is proud to announce its recent designation as a Women-Owned Business! As a 100 percent Employee-Owned company, this status is not only unique, it is historic. It is our understanding that we are the first ESOP to be granted Women Business Enterprise (WBE) status by the Supplier Clearinghouse.
Today people around the globe are celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievement of women. We at Babcock Labs are proud that our company strives for equal opportunity and gender equity. Women make up more than half of our workforce, including our management team. This is unique for a STEM company and something to be proud of, as women still remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce at large in the United States.
