Challenging Gendered Misconceptions: How the Women of Komatsu are Shaking Things Up!

20 July 2023

The ๐Ÿ‘Electrical ๐Ÿ‘ Industry ๐Ÿ‘ is ๐Ÿ‘ NOT ๐Ÿ‘ a ๐Ÿ‘ Boys ๐Ÿ‘ Club! ๐Ÿ‘

Shout it louder for those in the back!

After completing a two-year engineering course, Katie sparked an interest in electrical but never fully pursued it until a few years later when she reflected on her career and knew it was the way forward for her!

Her interest landed her a four-year electrical apprenticeship with Komatsu – and sheโ€™s never looked back! With leadership opportunities and the FULL support to go after her career, Katie has definitely found her career home.

  • How women are fully welcome in this vibrant industry – it is NOT a boys club!
