I’m pleased to announce Applied Materials was once again named a World’s Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute, a leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.
As a proud supporter of diversity and inclusion, and advocate for STEM careers, Applied Materials recently hosted female engineering students from Silicon Valley universities for a day of learning, growing and networking. Attendees heard from MIT alum and guest speaker Jennifer Hwang, a design verification manager for QuickLogic Corporation, along with a panel of Applied employees about exciting and rewarding career paths in engineering.
Congratulations to Applied Materials Executive Chairman Mike Splinter on receiving the Silicon Valley Education Foundation's (SVEF) Pioneer Business Leader Award for driving change in business and education philanthropy by using his passion and influence to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

It was truly a sight to see more than 200 of our employees and their families all gathered at Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties on Saturday morning. What were they all doing? Packing 6,000 boxes of nutritious meals at Applied Materials' 18th annual Helping Hands Day for delivery to individuals and families in need in Silicon Valley during the holidays.
