Establishing a diversity initiative
A Cummins case study

Page 6: Julie Douglass

Holset, located in Huddersfield, is a Cummins company specialising in designing and manufacturing state-of-the-art turbochargers for diesel engines. Its graduate training scheme recently welcomed Julie Douglass. She is a mother of 5 who graduated with a first class honours degree in engineering and also received a Best Project prize from the Institute of Mechanical Engineers.

During her first year, Julie trained in several departments before being assigned to the bearings section, with support provided to ensure she could take on a challenging role while maintaining her family commitments. The diversity programme is aimed at attracting new recruits such as Julie to the company and providing a more flexible working environment to help them reach their full potential.
