"The environment is very supportive during a transition that can be quite challenging."

After taking a career break, Kelly Thompson decided to return to the workforce, and is now senior manager at UTC Aerospace Systems, thanks to the Re-Empower program. She said the program allowed her to “return to an equivalent role from when I stepped away.” Though the transition back can be challenging, she found organizational skills used in volunteer work during her career break, the peer-buddy system and tech mentor helped make that transition much smoother. Overall, Thompson says that Re-Empower is “an incredible program that offers support through a variety on avenues.”
