Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you establishing a Foundation?
Sensata has a long and proud history of supporting the communities in which we operate. For nearly all of our 100-year history, we have been involved with outreach programs that nurture and support education, economic development, civic involvement and diversity. As we enter our second century, we are creating our own Sensata Foundation to more closely support qualifying charitable entities that support our core initiatives. Our goal is to make a greater impact on our world through giving of our time, talent and resources. The vision of our Foundation is to support communities where we live & work and foster a passion about STEM subjects and all that they can make possible in the 21st century.
Why is corporate citizenship important at Sensata?
It’s in our DNA to give back to the communities where we live and work. Since our founding in 1916, we have supported many causes that our employees care about – both through financial donations and employee volunteerism. As we continue to grow, we feel that it’s time to provide more structure and process to this area so we can ensure that it receives the focus it needs – a focus that is representative of the $3B organization that we have become.
