Schneider Electric, a global leader in energy management and Premier Partner of the National Electrical Contractor Association (NECA), will participate in the Women in NECA (WIN) Leadership Summit, May 27-29, 2015 in Atlanta. Kelly Becker, Business Director for the Power Solutions Division, will host a roundtable discussion on leadership while there. In addition, five Schneider Electric women will represent different roles, levels and regions.

“It is important for Schneider Electric to participate at WIN because NECA is our most direct contact with the electrical contracting industry, with contractors that experience our products every day and creating a peer network of women in the electrical industry,” said Becker.

Schneider Electric and its core brand for electrical contractors Square D values the NECA Premier partnership. The opportunity to connect and learn with female electrical contractors is invaluable.

“We take pride in supporting electrical contractors through proven performance, innovating and access to expertise,” said Iram Shah, SVP Customer Transformation. “We are grateful this opportunity goes one step further, by providing a collaborative and in-depth discussion on how leadership affects electrical contractors, professionally and personally.”

In an industry like electrical contracting where there are not as many women, understanding both the challenges and the positive ways in which women are growing and are taking leadership positions is what makes women successful. Schneider Electric has women leaders and knows it is not about men or women, it is about who has the skills, who can do the best job and how to empower them to make decisions.

“As a woman who is a leader in an organization, it is important to help other women,” Adriane Breiner, Electric Vehicle Solutions Director, said. “Have confidence in yourself and your knowledge. Ultimately these factors will result in success.”
