Says Erica Riggins, Motorola workforce development manager, "A diverse team of engineers, bringing multiple backgrounds and experiences to a problem-solving process, is more likely to come to a better solution than a team that thinks and acts alike, and women are an integral part of the team." The WITI Scholarship Fund is being introduced at a time when the percentage of women earning technical degrees has remained relatively flat for the last decade.
