Our Women in the Technical Field
Our Women in the Technical Field are breaking stereotypes and showing others that women can also succeed professionally in the technical field.
Women are changing the world
“Air Liquide provides an engaging environment where women can develop in technical and management roles while contributing to our ambitious sustainability objectives.”
Fabienne Lecorvaisier, Executive Vice President (July 2017 - March 2023)
"Women's access to professions in industry and science, which are still predominantly male, is a key issue. Air Liquide believes in improving their access and devotes resources to it, which benefits everyone. We strongly encourage women to build their careers at Air Liquide."
Edith Lemieux, Director of the Air Liquide University & HR Transformation Projects
Just as the United Nations has made gender equality one of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, we have also made it one of the pillars of our growth strategy.
"Equal opportunities for women and men isn't something you can order; it's mainly about changing behaviors. Air Liquide is working on biases and prejudices to remove barriers and promote a culture of inclusion," says Dana Allen, Leadership and Diversity Program Director. "By leveraging our differences, we can create more sustainable and innovative solutions to the major challenges facing society."
In Air Liquide Singapore, we have a diverse workforce, including women in the technical field. They are in the field managing the daily operations of our plants and ensuring that we deliver the most reliable products and services to meet the unique needs of our customers.

Let’s take a closer look at their journeys.
Graduated from a Chemical Engineering background, Agustin is always curious to see how the knowledge that she has learnt in school can be put into practical use. Being an Operations Engineer for our Hydrogen Plant in Jurong Island has given her the opportunity to do so. Today she is a Business Development Engineer and with the technical knowledge that she possesses, she is able to understand our customers needs and develop best-in- class solutions to exceed their expectations.
Rafiqah was an intern with the Commercial team in Air Liquide Singapore before she returned as a full-time employee after graduation. While interning, she believed that with a technical background, she would be able to “sell” better. This began her career in the technical field. Even though she is not onsite everyday, she is still supporting the team technically with her experience and expertise.
Lee Keng was also an intern in Air Liquide Singapore before she returned as a full-time employee after graduation. With an interest in the technical field, she began her journey and had not looked back ever since. She believes that both males and females can succeed professionally in the technical field.
Angeline embarked on her technical journey fifteen years ago as a Chemist in Air Liquide Singapore. Ever since then, she has been building her technical knowledge and expertise and today she is able to leverage this knowledge and expertise to develop win-win solutions for the company and customers. She is also recognized for her technical expertise as an International Technical Community Leader in the Air Liquide Group.
