In addition, Littelfuse is serving as a conference sponsor for the Women in Electronics’ upcoming Even Better Together Leadership Summit, which will be held on Wednesday, March 24 from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Central Time.
“We are proud to support Women in Electronics and their commitment to the growth and development of women across the electronics industry,” said Dave Heinzmann, Littelfuse President and Chief Executive Officer. “For Littelfuse as well as our entire industry, when the talents of women are utilized to their full potential, we give stronger voices to diverse viewpoints, which drives greater innovation and improved performance.”
The Littelfuse partnership with WE will serve as a valuable resource to the Littelfuse Women’s Initiative Network (WiN).

“We are incredibly honored to bring Littelfuse into the WE sponsorship family,” said Jackie Mattox, Founder/President, Women in Electronics. “We look forward to many great strides together and especially aligning with their thriving internal employee resource group — the Littelfuse Women’s Initiative Network (WiN) — to advance women in the industry. On behalf of the Executive Team and the entire organization, WE could not be more thrilled.”
