GlobalFoundries has announced its association with the US Commerce Department’s CHIPS Women in Construction Framework program. This program intends to spread awareness about the 5 most important points to be followed as part of best practices intended to increase the representation of women and economically disadvantaged individuals in the construction workforce. 

The framework is part of an initiative by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo’s ongoing Million Women in Construction initiative that aims to expand the American construction workforce by doubling the number of women in construction over the next decade.

The association was announced by GF’s Chief People Officer Pradheepa Raman during an event at the White House. “At GlobalFoundries, we celebrate our diversity and are steadfast in our commitment to shaping the future of the semiconductor industry. Every day, our talented team is pushing the boundaries of innovation to shape essential technologies that are making the world a better place,” Raman said. “We applaud the leadership of Secretary Raimondo in taking action to diversify our nation’s workforce. GlobalFoundries is proud to commit to the Department of Commerce’s CHIPS Women in Construction Framework. A more diverse construction workforce benefits all of us, strengthening our industry and our communities.”

The said best 5 practices are as follows:

  • Set goals and monitor progress
  • Build community partnerships with community organizations
  • Develop training pathways that serve women and economically disadvantaged individuals
  • Provide access to supportive services such as child care or transportation 
  • Maintain healthy, safe, and respectful workplaces
