Marlene McGrath, 3M Senior Vice President, Human Resources, has made a point of traveling the world over her career to see firsthand dozens of the countries where the global science powerhouse operates. “I am so impressed with the level of talent we have and the skills and experience I see," she says. "I am convinced the future of 3M as an innovative, thriving company is built on our people.” That philosophy – coupled with being a lifelong people person – has honed Marlene’s focus on employee engagement, diversity and inclusion, and leadership development in her current role as leader of human resources. 3M, she says, is fast becoming known as a place where talented people of different backgrounds and cultures see themselves excelling along a career path they’ve created, and a company where leaders can grow. Her team focuses on making sure that 3M provides future leaders with the support, development and diverse assignments necessary to prepare them for success in a complex world.
