I have always felt welcomed and respected at CIRCOR. As an Engineer you don’t find many women studying in this field, so it was a bit daunting at first coming into it and I wasn’t sure what to expect. But everyone I have worked with has looked past my gender and just seen me as me.

Many Voices, One Diverse Team

Diversity & Inclusion @ CIRCOR

We know that a diverse workforce and inclusive work environment improve our employees’ lives and our business. Diverse teams are more innovative, experience better performance and create superior results. CIRCOR is working hard to ensure we have a strong foundation of how to build and grow diverse teams, to ensure our employees can be themselves and be successful.

Jessica Wenzell SVP & General Counsel, D&I Steering Committee Chair

Jessica Wenzell

Why am I committed to D&I at CIRCOR? Because too often I have seen people ignored at meetings, looked over for that promotion, or disregarded in the workplace. I, too, have felt like I did not “belong” in my organization. Spending my career in a “male dominated” industry, this is the first time I have felt truly welcomed to the table, supported, and fully respected as the professional that I am. D&I is not just a buzz word here at CIRCOR. We truly are a committed group of professionals focused on supporting and elevating the diverse voices within our organization, giving everyone the opportunity to share their unique experiences to achieve excellence in our industry.

Amber Harrison Director Contracts

Amber Harrison

Diversity and inclusion has been a passion of mine for many, many years, both in and outside the workplace. Throughout my life I’ve seen how the feeling of ‘otherness’ can impact one’s sense of self and belonging. I love CIRCOR’s holistic approach to D&I and find that it jives well with my own. Inclusion doesn’t have to look like homogeneity, in fact, quite the opposite – diversity brings such a richness of perspective and culture and makes us all better humans and employees when we can see things from different aspects. CIRCOR truly values the individual experience and what they can bring to the table. DE&I not easy work, but CIRCOR understands it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

Bree Beauregard Senior Manager, Human Resources

Bree Beauregard

As a global corporation, we at CIRCOR are fortunate to have a multi-cultural, multi-racial and multi-ethnic workforce. As we look at our future, our continued success will be a function of how well we leverage our diversity and how we include and elevate the talents and voices amongst us. We all have a role to play in this and it all starts with respect, humility and curiosity. Getting to know and understand different backgrounds, strengths and viewpoints is essential to creating an environment that’s conducive to engagement, participation and growth. This means that going beyond tolerance and embracing our co-workers to be their full authentic self.

Sri Thangaswamy Director Strategy, Analytics & Operational Excellence

Sri Thangaswamy

D&I is about getting to know other cultures. We all live in diversity in one way or another. It’s a way to promote identity, diversity and pluralism as a global heritage. Values and "living together" are the basis of this cultural reflection. We are all different from each other and this identity diversity categorizes people. Intercultural dialogue therefore makes it possible to break these stigmatizations. We all have something to contribute to others, so this is all the more reason to connect with the other cultures around us. D&I at CIRCOR represents a powerful lever for innovation and creativity.

Nafissa Ramdani Senior Manager Human Resources

Nafissa Ramdani

Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) are interconnected concepts and provide the ultimate benefits when employed together. A diverse and inclusive workplace makes everyone feel involved and supported. It establishes a sense of belonging and brings employees together creating more effective teams. As a result, organizations with strong D&I cultures enjoy better business results, innovation, decision making, and employee retention. Our goal as an organization should be that D&I is part of our fabric and shall not require special efforts to drive and leverage.

Tony Najjar Group President, Aerospace and Defense

Tony Najjar

When I think of Diversity & Inclusion, I am reminded of the first CIRCOR EHS conference I attended. The team members were from a wide variety of places from around the globe such as the U.S., Italy, France, the Netherlands, the U.K., Germany, India and China. These were people of different mother tongues and represented legacy and integrated companies across CIRCOR. Our differences became our strength as we worked closely to generate ideas to help navigate through one of them most difficult periods of the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe that when we are faced with hardship and difficulty, diverse cultures & backgrounds can enable teams to deliver higher performance and solve tough problems more effectively - the key is to have respect for each other and to incorporate D&I within our culture.

Jing Wang Sr Manager EHS, Quality and CI

Jing Wang

As we know, teams that are made up of diverse representation, people from all levels of the company, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or life choice, bring more diverse perspectives and innovative thoughts when solving problems, resulting in solutions that are always more robust than the myopic perspective generated from any individual or homogeneous group. CIRCOR’s global family and diverse team is motivated to work together, to love and respect each other, as we progress on our journey towards building a World Class company.

Ron Sepe Senior Director of Global Operations

Ron Sepe

Diversity, equity, and inclusion aren’t and shouldn’t be about politics, agendas, or metrics. It can’t be about making an external show of getting on the bandwagon with the latest buzzword. It’s about creating and supporting a lasting environment where we see and honor people for who they are, and we celebrate all that someone brings to the table. It’s about allowing yourself and everyone around you to show, be, and bring their true self all day, every day, in every situation. There is strength and power in the uniqueness of all humankind. Supporting and growing a culture of diversity naturally brings growth to teams, advances innovation, and overall promotes greater success for the business.

Kathy Olson Senior Manager Human Resources

Kathy Olson

As a woman working in manufacturing for most of my adult life, I have experienced a distinct lack of diversity, being the only woman in many meetings made me feel as though I had to work harder and shout louder. Now I am working as part of a company that really shares my values and embraces diversity by recognizing and celebrating the uniqueness and value of every individual. I believe that business can be a fantastic force for change and at CIRCOR being inclusive is a natural reflex, not just an initiative. Our people add value and every voice is included, listened to and respected.
