Fox Factory Partners with Society of Women Engineers

Fox Factory Partners with Society of Women Engineers | THE SHOPFox Factory has formed a new partnership with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), the company announced.

In addition to the annual partnership, the company will make an appearance at the SWE National Conference held in Houston, Texas, Oct. 20-22, to recruit professionals for Fox’s summer internship program and engineering positions, the company said.

As part of the partnership, Fox will offer SWE annual memberships to employees with the goal of providing more opportunities for mentoring, training, and professional growth, Fox Factory representatives said.

“I am thrilled that our company has started this official partnership,” said Jackie Martin, Fox Factory’s Chief Purpose and Inclusion Officer. “Originally, I started my career as an engineer, a field that remains heavily male-dominated. So, I know the importance of having role models, a good support system, and a diverse network to help women professionals develop and thrive in the STEM workforce.”

“Growing up, I was around women who worked in male-dominated environments, such as the automotive and IT [information technology] industries,” said Kayleigh Hreha, Fox Factory’s design engineer. “I’m so proud of all the women in my life who worked hard so I can have this opportunity to be Fox’s first female Design Engineer and even more proud to work for a company that is investing in change.”

SWE’s mission is to empower women to achieve their full potential in careers as engineers and leaders, expand the image of the engineering and technology professions as a positive force in improving the quality of life, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion, the organization said.
