Keysight Executives Praise SWE



Keysight University Program Director Honored by SWE

Erica Messinger, Keysight’s Worldwide University Program Director, will receive SWE’s Spark Award at the WE16 Conference.  The Spark Award honors those who have contributed to the advancement of women, made a difference in the lives of many by affecting women at a variety of levels, from high school to executive positions, and mentored multiple women over their careers in a variety of settings

As global program director, Erica provides strategic vision and leadership for our multi-tiered engagements with Universities and Academic/Research Institutions.  She works collaboratively across various touchpoints to unify and optimize investments in the “education ecosystem.”  This includes placement of Keysight solutions among the next generation of engineers, impacting research partnerships with Universities, grants, recruiting, marketing and growing sales in the education market.

Erica has been with Hewlett Packard/Agilent Technologies/Keysight Technologies for 17 years holding various roles including sales channel management, business development, and program management.  She’s passionate about women in engineering and has represented us to SWE since the Corporate Partnership Council was first formed in 2003.  Erica has recruited, organized and led delegations to SWE National and Regional Conferences since 2004, growing Keysight’s delegation to almost 50 women last year.  In 2013 she launched an annual day of programming that provides delegates with speaking opportunities, panel discussions, and structured networking to solidify relationships, find support and facilitate continued development as engineering professionals.  When Keysight spun off from Agilent in 2014, Erica solicited the support needed to implement a Keysight / SWE Enterprise Program and maintain a strong commitment throughout the organization for continued investment in women at the company.

The Achievement Award Reception and Awards Banquet will be held in the Grand Hall on Oct. 28 at 6:00 p.m.
