Johnson Controls is looking for women who have backgrounds in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and have been out of the workforce for two or more years to join its Next Chapter program.

The program offers employment opportunities for women in STEM fields and is an extension of the larger STEM Re-Entry Task Force initiative driven by the Society of Women Engineers and career re-entry firm iRelaunch.

Those selected for the program receive an eight-week “experienced on-boarding” process that’s customized to each individual. Participants will be a part of a project team and will receive training in order to close any knowledge gaps. They will also have access to networking opportunities and a dedicated mentor.

“Our industry has faced challenges in attracting and retaining women in STEM positions,” said Linda Chapin, vice president of human resources for Johnson Controls’ Buildings Technologies & Solutions. “Our Next Chapter program is an important step toward this transformation.”
