Meet Sarah (center) with members of the Baxter Engineering team who initiated a corporate partnership with Society of Women Engineers.

Initially I thought I would go to medical school and become a doctor, but I remember calling my mom sophomore year in college and saying Im going to miss my math. I realized at that moment that I preferred to be behind the scenes helping patients by making products that will save them.

Meet Anwesha recently promoted to Manager, she leads a team of software engineers for our Medication Delivery business.

I grew up in a small coastal town in India called Bhubaneswar, where we have our own traditions and culture. I think this has helped me grow personally and professionally. Working with a global team at Baxter, my background helps me to be open, appreciate and relate to people from all different places.

Meet Sam he has been with Baxter for over 15 years, working as an Engineering Technologist in Round Lake, IL, US.

I have a wonderful team. They have been flexible and open to the differences in communication methods and work style necessary for me to excel. If I didnt have that support, I wouldnt be where I am now and I wouldnt have been able to advance within the company. Im proud to work at Baxter.

Meet Erika she has been an engineer in Round Lake, IL, US for over four years, promoted to Senior Principal Engineer in 2019.

My involvement with National Society of Black Engineers outside of work has afforded me the opportunity to manage Baxters external partnership with the organization, exposing us to networking and talent that can help drive diversity and innovation, and providing opportunities for more community engagement and involvement, which I know a lot of my colleagues like.
