Talent Development, Diversity & Inclusion

Talent Development, Diversity & Inclusion
At AMETEK STC, one of the main causes that we support, both financially through the AMETEK Foundation and through volunteer work by our employees, is talent development and hereunder also diversity and inclusion. 

Talent Development, Diversity & Inclusion

Scholarships

Throughout many years, we have supported talented children and young adults through scholarships. As we focus our support locally, we offer sholarships at:

- Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), Pennsylvania: Four scholarships (Abington Campus, Brandywine Campus and University Park Campus). Scholarships for two undergraduate-level Engineering students, two to recognize outstanding student leaders in either Mechanical, Industrial or Electrical Engineering, and one for the Multicultural Engineering Program experience. 

- California Polytechnical State University, San Luis Obispo, California: A scholarship to sponsor a Student Technician at the Poly Hangar and Mustang ’60 Student Machine Shops where approx.. 5,500 students utilize the lab facilities for hands-on fabrication experience.

- Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation, Horsham, Pennsylvania: Financially supporting their Girl’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, Engineering & Mathematics) speaker’s program. Girl’s STEAM’s goal is to encourage women to pursue a career within STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics). Besides supporting the Girl’s STEAM speaker’s program financially, some of our employees also volunteer to giving inspirational STEAM sessions where they share the story about their own career path. 


Engineer for a Day

Engineer For A Day
At our Center of Excellence based in Largo, Florida, we host various initiatives to support children and young adults interested in Engineering. We annually host a day of “shadowing” where a high school student from Largo High School, interested in Engineering, follows one of our skilled Engineers to understand what a day of an Engineer is like.


Promoting Childhood Literacy

Promoting Childhood Reading Literacy

Since 2002, the AMETEK Foundation has partnered with the American Reading Company to improve literacy rates among children in underserved communities across United States. The partnership has provided more than 120,000 books to students in kindergarten through third grade. In addition, AMETEK colleagues support these efforts by reading to students and working with teachers to promote American Reading Company’s 100-book challenge.


Eagle Eye Mobile

Philadelphia Eagles Eye Mobile

We believe in diversity and that talent comes from all places. Therefore, we actively support the education of children and young adults (see the page Talent Development, Diversity & Inclusion for more information). However, for some children, an obstacle to being able to read can be as simple as having a need for glasses, but the family not being able to afford this. We support Vision To Learn’s efforts with the Philadelphia Eagles Eye Mobile. The Eye Mobile provides free eye exams and glasses to underserved students in the Philadelphia region where our Horsham Center of Excellence and the AMETEK Inc. head office are based.
