2019 Edition. In SemiSister Award
Brewer Science has long been a proponent of gender diversity and inclusion. This commitment is infused throughout the company. Our executive leadership team includes Barbara Picarelli, Executive Director of Finance, Purchasing, and IT; Rama Puligadda, Executive Director of Corporate R&D; and Kim Arnold, Executive Director of WLP Materials. Brewer Science averages 10-25% more women in technical jobs, leadership roles, and total workforce than most technology leaders in the semiconductor industry. Brewer Science is also known for developing and participating in programs that support inclusiveness. To promote girls’ STEM interest, we’ve welcomed students from St. Joseph’s Academy, an all-girls’ high school, and we host Science Day Academies yearly at local elementary schools. Our proactive engagement of all employees secured us a Top Workplaces award from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for the last 5 years, and the Missouri Dept. of Health and Senior Services recognized Brewer Science as a breastfeeding-friendly worksite.
