Our philanthropic strategy is shaped by industry, company and community needs. Our holistic approach makes the best use of Rockwell Automation capabilities, improves the quality of life in our communities and creates a talent pipeline for our company and industry.

To ensure a skilled workforce, one that reflects the diversity of our customers and partners, we focus on improving and increasing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, particularly among young women and underrepresented groups.

At the same time, we know we must contribute to the vibrancy and sustainability of our communities through support of programs that provide basic services, offer arts and cultural opportunities, foster civic leadership and aid during disaster.


Rockwell Automation supports the major communities in which we live and work by donating time, talent and resources to organizations that embrace our spirit of inclusion.

To create a greater impact, we focus our efforts on select community partners that match our philanthropic priorities. We call our approach "Focused Giving."


We help inspire the next generation of innovative thinkers and problem solvers for careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with our investment in academic programs.

Our strategic STEM partners, FIRST, Project Lead the Way and ST Math, help us illustrate our belief in Engineering Our Future and Inspiring Young Minds.


Rockwell Automation employees volunteer thousands of service hours to community organizations around the world. The Rockwell Automation Volunteer Recognition Program acknowledges the outstanding achievement of those who reach out to others and celebrates their stellar service. Every year, we donate cash awards to each award recipient's charity of choice.
