INVISTA enlightens future minds in the chemical industry
INVISTA Scholarship, Talent Forum at South China University of Technology continues to cultivate local talent
INVISTA, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of chemical intermediates, polymers and fibers, awarded INVISTA Encouragement Scholarships to 22 students from the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at South China University of Technology (SCUT) during the school’s annual opening ceremony. This is the 3rd consecutive year for INVISTA to support high-performing SCUT chemical engineering undergraduate and graduate students in becoming the next generation of chemical industry professionals.
“We appreciate the opportunity to share with the students one very important element in our corporate MBM® culture, that is, to create long-term real value for the society by protecting the environment and the safety and health of workers and the communities in which we operate; using resources more efficiently; and consistently applying sound science,” said Gary Knight, global operations vice president, INVISTA Apparel & Advanced Textiles, in his speech at the ceremony. “We believe these concepts are also crucial to future practitioners in the chemical industry.”
At the subsequent INVISTA talent development forum, Joanna Jin, human resources director, INVISTA Apparel & Advanced Textiles, Asia Pacific, and Choon Hueei Beck, INVISTA’s Foshan apparel plant manager, shared the ten guiding principles of INVISTA’s corporate MBM® culture, including integrity, which is the company’s number one principle. Jammy Li, a SCUT alumni, shared his experiences in growing from a management trainee to an asset availability leader in INVISTA.
