“When I came back from the International Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Conference in Chicago last year, I was deeply impressed at the huge opportunity this forum provides for women engineers from diverse fields, experience and backgrounds to come together!

Rachita Sahgal, the director of learning and development for GE India and former Crotonville Leader at GE Global Learning for the Asia Pacific was recently in Bali, Indonesia and facilitated an ASEAN Leadership Program for GE’s strategic partners across the region.

GE plans to hire about 2,000 workers for its facility in the western Indian city of Pune, which will be built over 60 acres and cater to all the company’s businesses in India, said John Flannery, GE India president and chief executive. Flannery said the new factory will help to drive localization of GE’s products in the country. He said the planned hiring of 6,000 workers in India, including the 2,000 for the Pune facility, will increase GE’s workforce in the country to 20,000 in the next two to three years.
Localisation at GE India now doesn’t just stop at reverse innovations. In the works is a new, $ 200 million infrastructure equipment manufacturing facility in India whose principal user would be the energy sector besides the aviation and health areas. GE plans to recruit over 3,000 people for the same this year.
Global healthcare major, GE Healthcare Life Sciences has exhorted young Indian scientists and scholars in molecular biology to compete for its prestigious science award, which includes a $25,000 cash prize. The award prize, co-sponsored by the acclaimed journal “Science”, will be given to the best scientist/researcher whose 1,000-word essay on his/her doctoral thesis will be selected for publication in the weekly international magazine. “Cash prizes of $5,000 each will also be awarded to finalists from four geographic regions – Asia, Africa, Americas and Europe. All the winners will be invited to Stockholm in Sweden in December to interact with the current Nobel laureates,” GE Healthcare chief executive Kieran Murphy said.
