Hiring, retaining, and promoting more women is a special focus at Kaman. In 2016, we inaugurated Women Advocating Leadership at Kaman (WALK). This important program seeks to adapt our culture to help promote women in leadership; provide women with equal access to development opportunities; and create a more work-life balanced, family-friendly company for everyone.
