SWiFT—Cultivating Women in Flowers

Syngenta Women in Flowers Team

We created SWiFT, aka Syngenta Women in Flowers Team, to build up the women in our company community. SWiFT provides employees with additional possibilities for personal and professional growth, as well as internal networking and career-path benefits.

Our members, both men, and women are free to explore their passions in this employee resource group, like the importance of gender diversity, equity, and inclusion. We encourage women to have a strong voice and support each other in their professional development.

We embrace and encourage diversity; this is what drives our innovation and allows us to outperform the market. We are from hugely varied backgrounds and all working-age generations. We are from different genders, and we have different ways of thinking. Join SWiFT today and start benefiting from our powerful mission to cultivate women in flowers.
