“Engineering runs in our family. Adrian, my oldest son, works in the Bay Area as a field applications engineer and my next son, Cristian, is a rising senior at Texas A&M and an intern at TI this summer. All three of us will have a degree in electrical engineering very soon. My youngest son is already enrolled in the honors engineering program at Texas A&M pursuing an electrical engineering degree. Recently, Adrian and I were discussing one of his customer’s needs, and we were able to connect the dots to a new product that would lend itself nicely to his customer’s needs. Innovation is at the heart of TI, and small conversations like these outside of work lend themselves to problem-solving. Our family is privileged to be a small part of the innovation process.” –Manny, product marketing engineer #TIHumanElement

“I was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, and moved to the U.S. for undergraduate and graduate studies. I enjoy being an engineer, especially at a company like TI. Engineers are generally meritocratic - your ideas and what you bring to the table are highly valued -- no matter what you look like or where you’re from. I work with people from all over the world with different backgrounds and viewpoints; however, when we’re working on a project, I forget where people are from because we’re just engineers trying to solve problems and create products that help make the world safer, greener and more fun. -Obi, marketing manager and winner of a BEYA STEM Outstanding Achievement Award #TIHumanElement #TIDiversityAwards

Miriam: Tanja made the striking suggestion to study electrical engineering. I don’t know where I would be without her. Being an engineer is awesome and makes me see the world much differently than I did as a student. What is important to understand: we share almost everything—above all friends and experiences.
Tanja: We didn’t expect to work together, but we told ourselves why not? Miri encouraged me to apply to TI, and I took the opportunity as I wanted to be part of an innovative and internationally renowned company. With us, everything is based on reciprocity, which makes our relationship so strong. Definitely a win for me! - Miriam and Tanja, twin sisters who started at TI in November 2016 as a Field Application Associate and Technical Sales Associate, respectively #TIHumanElement

“I started a nonprofit organization in 2014 called Girls to Queens, which focuses on middle-school girls who may not have exposure to college and career resources. Our goal is to connect these young ladies with a network to engage and support them. Events introduce girls to colleges, careers and real-world skills in a safe and fun environment. Our signature program, Crowned, invites 16-20 girls on a life-changing adventure, including visiting colleges and companies, as well as engaging in real-life experiences, such as public speaking, coding a webpage and developing a business plan. The organization teaches leadership, teamwork and communication – all while embracing each other’s differences.” – Celeste, sales and digital marketing #TIHumanElement

“Many people think mentoring a robotics team requires you to be really good at building complex systems or programming. Mentoring is about so much more than the robot. It’s branding and marketing, costume and button designs and inspiring our community and the kids. It’s also about who will shape the future and learning how to work with others to accomplish what was once thought of as impossible. If robotics is not your thing, then I would encourage you to find something you enjoy and mentor on that. Today’s youth are waiting and willing to work with us to solve tomorrow’s problems. Let’s do what we can to give them a head start.” - Jason, Thin Film technician supervisor and mentor of FRC 6369 robotics team #TIHumanElement

"I volunteer because I believe all kids deserve to feel good about themselves, and the little we can do to instill confidence so they are off to a good start is well worth it." – Faye, relationships and communications manager. She was one of about 70 volunteers who distributed school supplies and helped in other ways at the Mayor's Back-to-School Fair on Aug. 4 in Dallas. The event – sponsored in part by our company – provided free health, dental and vision screenings, haircuts, school supplies, and much more to help needy students prepare for the new school year. #TIHumanElement

“I honestly never know when I come to work in the morning what’s going to happen. It never gets boring, and I learn each day. My motto is, ‘learning from failures is essential.’ Innovation is a very, very important thing. TI is a strong driver for this. If you innovate in a very creative way, which really helps to solve certain issues in daily life, I think it correlates to good business.” – Dietmar, engineer, Germany #TIHumanElement #GeekWeek

“In my daily job, innovation goes well with experimentation. Sometimes, if you take the risk of deviating from the known path, you can produce a better solution for customers. I enjoy staying active and busy at work and in my personal life. You will not find me sitting on the couch watching TV. Working on old motorcycles is like keeping a tradition alive. I spend more time on the side of my motorcycles – welding, wrenching, removing gears – than on top of them. But when it comes to the actual ride, the rewards are twice as big.” -Stefano, modeling engineer in ATD spice modeling lab #TIHumanElement

"As engineers, we solve problems that don’t yet have solutions. That’s exactly what we’re doing for our son, Joseph. We have learned that we actually can change the outcome of a terminal diagnosis – but there is work to do to make this happen. If ultimately our work doesn’t benefit Joseph and our family directly, it will change the outcome for someone. That is how rare diseases get cured.” – Matt and Gina, TI engineers #TIHumanElement To read more about Matt and Gina’s story, visit our company blog tomorrow: ti.com/companyblog

“I think women can underestimate how rewarding and how easy it can be to have a career in technology. A lot of women think engineering is a man’s world, which is not the case. Women have a special advantage in the tech field, because it’s our instinct to understand how technology impacts our daily lives. We also pay great attention to detail, which helps us be great innovators in technology because details matter a lot in a product’s success.” –Irene, Product Line Manager, recent honoree of the Dallas Business Journal ‘Women in Technology’ #TIHumanElement #TIDiversityAwards

“My advice to working moms—or anyone with a career—is to not do it alone. Build networks, both personally and professionally, and leverage them. People who care about you want to help you and your family succeed, in the same way you’d help them. As long as I’m effective and present in my job, I can be present for my daughter, too. I can attend her important events and performances, even during the day. My team has full access to my calendar and knows where I am during the day. I’m completely transparent and they are supportive, as I am of them.” - Tracey, TI's Working Mother of the Year 2017 and Device Characterization Lab & Scribe Development manager. #TIHumanElement #TIDiversityAwards #WorkingMother

“My self-confidence grew with Taekwondo. Even when competing with someone of a greater skill set, I focused on what I could learn from the experience, and that helped me to continuously improve. When I’m sparring, I try to predict what my opponent is going to do and turn that into strategy. Working in manufacturing is similar. We’re constantly coming up with ideas to improve our processes, productivity, costs and efficiency and trying to be proactive in our approach.” – Cameron, manufacturing manager and his daughter #TIHumanElement

“The field of electronics had strong potential when I invented the integrated circuit in 1958. The reality of what people have done with integrated circuits has gone far beyond what anyone - including myself - imagined possible at the time. Charles Townes, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work with laser technology, summed up how I feel, saying, ’It's like the beaver told the rabbit as they stared at the Hoover Dam. 'No, I didn’t build it myself. But it's based on an idea of mine!’" – Jack Kilby, inventor of the integrated circuit. #TIHumanElement #JackKilbyDay

“I hold volunteering in the community close to my heart. With support from TI, I’m able to fulfill my passion for helping those in need. Whether in big or little ways, every kind gesture makes a difference and the reward is priceless. Habitat for Humanity’s Playhouse Program is just one example of how TI gives back to the community. TI employees build, design and decorate children’s playhouses from scratch, which Habitat then donates to a local family or charity. I’m grateful to work for a company that values volunteerism.” –Martha, TI volunteer. Recently, TI made the San Francisco Business Times’ list of Top 100 Bay Area Corporate Philanthropists of 2017. #TIHumanElement #giveback #volunteer #TIDiversityAwards

“I believe you can pick up anything if you put your mind to it. I started making ice cream at home so I could combine flavors that you don’t typically see in stores. Now it’s a fun experiment my kids and I do all summer long, where I’m able to teach them about the math and chemistry that help make this treat tasty. Getting the flavors and consistency right is like a chemistry problem, and you have to create the correct mix of ingredients or it won’t turn out. Cooking shows don’t air the failed experiments, but I want my kids to learn the importance of trial and error.” – Kannan, engineer, audio amplifier team #TIHumanElement #nationalicecreammonth

“Six years ago, I fractured my right knee while skiing. My doctor said it might be impossible to come back from the injury and that being a national skier was highly unlikely. But that bad news didn’t stop me. Instead, I decided to work hard at my rehabilitation with the goal of participating in a national competition. My period of rehabilitation was long, and often the possibility of skiing again was uncertain. But through hard work, patience and determination, I reached my goal. I was so thrilled when I was selected to represent Ibaraki Prefecture as a giant slalom skier for the national sports festival in Japan this past March. Although I finished in 69th place, I was happy just finishing the race. I’ve found that preparing for a race and completing my daily work are very similar. Caring for my skiing career requires skill and patience and my work also requires this same careful attention to detail. Additionally both require good time management skills. Throughout my rehabilitation and training, I relied on these strengths to help me succeed. ” -Shuji, Miho Product Engineer Analysis, #TIHumanElement

“I’m from Ethiopia and came to the United States for my studies at @uarkansas. Two of my professors were TI alumni and introduced me to the company. As an intern, I learned a lot and got some valuable, practical experience. I appreciated the interactions I had with senior technical leaders. I also realized that you learn a lot by asking the right questions and challenging the status quo. Being curious can inspire ideas in other people and sometimes lead to solutions you don’t expect. Today in my role as a product line manager, I continue to question the status quo and I encourage my team to do so as well” –Tsedeniya, product line manager, #TIHumanElement

“Winning Forbes’ 2017 China Best Businesswomen is the utmost encouragement for me and all females in the semiconductor industry. Even in an industry where men make up the higher share of the population, if we keep striving and pursuing our career goals persistently, women throughout China can achieve similar success. I would like to express my deep gratitude: Thanks to Forbes for this honor. Thanks to the support from my husband and parents and to the guidance and help from all my colleagues. I would especially like to convey my appreciation to Texas Instruments for providing all the equal development opportunities and comprehensive plans to cultivate talent in employees of all genders and diversified cultures,” said Sandy Hu, President of TI China and recipient of Forbes 2017 Best Businesswomen in China award. #TIHumanElement #TIDiversityAwards

“Innovation makes the world go round, and if you lose that, you lose everything. I started designing and building carbon fiber trombones four years ago. My dad was in the aerospace industry. He actually worked on NASA’s Apollo project, so I was exposed to composites at an early age. I always wondered what composite material would do to a brass instrument. The idea came from a combo of aerospace, music and the high-tech industry. One day I started replacing parts on my trombones with carbon fiber until I had an instrument completely made of carbon fiber. I started sending the prototypes out to friends and they loved them. Now I get orders from all over the world. I’ve been a musician all my life, but I now play in the Emerald City Band. I am the only band member who has a full-time job; the rest are full-time musicians. We travel all over the country and do more than 200 shows a year, often performing one or two shows a week." – David, UI Designer #TIHumanElement
