Keysight at WE17
Keysight places high value on the development and advancement of our employees. This was exemplified by the 74 Keysight engineers, managers and other professionals from seven different countries that attended last year’s Society of Women Engineers Annual Conference, WE17. They joined more than 14,000 attendees from 26 countries.
Before participating in the various WE17 workshops, panels or keynotes, the Keysight delegation spent a day together forging relationships with people from different parts of the company. Each of Keysight’s major business groups were represented and there was diversity in job function, years of experience and cultural background.
