    GF commits to framework of U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo’s “Million Women in Construction” Initiative

    MALTA, N.Y., June 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GlobalFoundries announced today a commitment to the U.S. Department of Commerce's CHIPS Women in Construction Framework, a set of five best practices intended to increase representation of women and economically disadvantaged individuals in the construction workforce. The Framework is part of U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo’s ongoing Million Women in Construction initiative that aims to expand the American construction workforce by doubling the number of women in construction over the next decade. GF Chief People Officer Pradheepa Raman announced the company’s commitment at the “CHIPS Women in Construction Roundtable” event at the White House.

    In voluntarily committing to the Framework, GF is agreeing to work with contractors, trade unions, and other community and workforce partners to implement best practices that will expand the construction workforce by increasing the participation of women and economically disadvantaged individuals. These recruitment and retention best practices will help support on-time and successful completion of CHIPS program-funded projects.

    "At GlobalFoundries, we celebrate our diversity and are steadfast in our commitment to shaping the future of the semiconductor industry. Every day, our talented team is pushing the boundaries of innovation to shape essential technologies that are making the world a better place," Raman said. "We applaud the leadership of Secretary Raimondo in taking action to diversify our nation's workforce. GlobalFoundries is proud to commit to the Department of Commerce's CHIPS Women in Construction Framework. A more diverse construction workforce benefits all of us, strengthening our industry and our communities."
