MADE TO MOVE COMMUNITIES - EE
Made to Move Communities™
As the company that is “Made to move youTM,” mobility is central to our vision: to give people freedom to connect and thrive in a taller, faster, smarter world.
Through this novel program, we are engaging young minds to imagine new mobility solutions for people everywhere. Just as important, by giving these students safe, hands-on experience under the mentorship of our experts, we hope to spark an early, lifelong interest in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math.
Inspiring STEM-based mobility solutions
Made to Move Communities, the cornerstone of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, focuses on two issues that are vital both to Otis and to the communities where we live and work: STEM education and inclusive mobility.
This annual challenge will inspire students from around the world to come up with creative, technology-based solutions for eliminating the physical, geographic and financial barriers to mobility that often afflict our neighbors.
Inclusive mobility and well-being
At Otis, we know just how important mobility is to people’s well-being and their ability to lead healthy, productive lives. Few companies have played a greater role in creating today’s connected urban world, and our innovations continue to transform how people live and work.
Yet even today, many people lack access to reliable, affordable, convenient means for getting where they need to go, whether it’s school, work, the market or to receive medical care.
We believe new technologies such as artificial intelligence, advanced robotics and other smart, connected devices and networks hold the potential to address these challenges and deliver on the promise of inclusive mobility – for everyone, everywhere.
By participating in Made to Move Communities, students will get a glimpse into this exciting future – and be encouraged to play a role in shaping the world we live in today and forgenerations to come.
Preparing the 21st century workforce
50 million STEM jobs unfilled by 2030 due to skills gap
In the era of Industry 4.0, technology permeates every job category, including manufacturing and many other trades. To prepare themselves for this rapidly evolving workplace, students need a solid grounding in STEM curricula and subjects – science, technology, engineering and math.
Yet according to one estimate, a skills gap may leave as many as 50 million jobs unfilled globally by 2030.1 Made to Move Communities is one way to help close this gap, by complementing existing school programs with safe, real-world lessons conducted under the guidance of Otis experts – people who are passionate about technology and helping to nurture the next generation of innovators.
