Kaman’s core values guide our approach to developing our people and supporting the communities in which we work and live.
At Kaman, we’re good at building things – from helicopters to engineered solutions to customer relationships. We apply this skill to help build our communities. In 2017, for example, for the second year, Owen Brown coordinated more than 70 Kaman employees and partnered with Habitat for Humanity to build five homes near our headquarters in Connecticut. We are also proud to co-sponsor, with the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame, the Eileen Kraus Scholarship for College-Bound Students, named for Kaman’s long-time Director. Pictured at lower right is the first recipient, Nina Bellusci.
Building careers is another thing we do well. Our WALK program, now in its third year, is increasing Kaman’s global representation of women in leadership roles. There are currently eight local WALK chapters across the United States. Kaman is also a proud member of both the Global Women’s Leadership Forum and Women in Manufacturing, two organizations that share our commitment to advancing the careers of women.
