In cooperation with Smiles Foundation and the Society for Nutrition, Education & Health Action, a Siemens corporate Citizenship initiative in India has launched a mobile healthcare clinic. The clinic, equipped with Siemens Healthcare technology, brings the examination room to underserved communities who are unable to access a hospital for financial or health reasons, or due to poor infrastructure.
Qualifications in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) – in science, technology, engineering and mathematics – play a vital role in the future of our country and its people. They shape the innovative power, the growth, but also the professional prospects of every individual. But even though the numbers of employees in science and technology have increased in recent years, we will face a shortage of more than 180,000 people with engineering skills annually in the UK alone.
Integrating refugees into society is currently one of the most important issues in Germany. Since 2016, Siemens has contributed to this integration by offering paths into the German labor market via internships and special training courses. Additionally, colleagues in many locations volunteered and helped to foster integration on a personal level. These initiatives have helped to provide refugees with new perspectives for the future.
In 2018, Siemens' already established activities were expanded to additional locations. A total of 96 refugee participants were trained in six special training courses and three-month internships for refugees will be offered at 23 locations in Germany.
With a start-up capital of 390 million Euros, Siemens Stiftung was established as a non-profit foundation under the German Civil Code. It complements Siemens Corporate Citizenship initiatives and cooperates with the other 6 Siemens foundations established by the company in Argentina, Brazil, Denmark, Colombia, in the USA and in France.
