T'yanna Rouse

Liz Barnet

Women in Line Leadership (WILL Rise)

"The WILL Rise program has been a critical development experience for me. A curriculum developed by women leaders in the organization who are in line leadership positions helped make the material relevant and practical. The collaborative and curated networking across the RTX means I now have strong, personal and professional relationships I wouldn’t have had otherwise." - Liz

John Edquist


"TechTracks provided the opportunity to work with technical leaders across Collins and make an impact beyond my day-to-day role. The program supported me in understanding my strengths and passions in developing my career plan. Together, with a multi-disciplinary cohort of engineering peers, we applied learnings to real projects which directly supported the greater Collins. More than ever, I understand my path forward." - John

Saravanan Jeyaraj

Customer Oriented Results and Excellence (CORE)

"CORE is all about change management which requires paradigm thinking within yourself and others. To be successful in change management, it’s critical to think differently and hear what hasn’t been said. The program’s kaizen (i.e., “change for the better”) engagements and trainings provided me enormous opportunities to experience and practice these soft behaviors. The CORE certification process exposed me to multiple global stakeholders and reiterated our company values: Trust, Respect, Accountability, Collaboration, and Innovation."
