Cummins to invest more than $10 million on female empowerment initiative

COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cummins Inc. announced plans Thursday for a new multi-million dollar initiative intended to empower more women and girls around the world.

The Columbus-based engine maker said it will invest more than $10 million to partner with eight not-for-profits that do work in more than 10 different countries “to make a larger, more sustainable and long-lasting impact.”

The program, which the company describes as its “most ambitious community initiative ever,” is called Cummins Powers Women. It will focus on areas where there are significant barriers preventing women from advancing and will help fund leadership training and development programs.
