Tonight the Manufacturing Institute in partnership with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, University of Phoenix and Deloitte will host the first annual Women in Manufacturing STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Awards. The awards are part of the larger STEP Ahead initiative launched to examine and promote the role of women in the manufacturing industry through recognition, research and best practices for attacking, advancing and retaining strong female talent.
The recipients represent a diverse group of 122 women recognized for their outstanding contributions to the manufacturing industry. These honorees are the faces of exciting careers in manufacturing and have made a positive impact on their company and the industry. They have extremely inspiring stories that truly demonstrate leadership and will inspire the next generation of women leaders in manufacturing. Throughout the day we will post on Shopfloor a few of the stories of tonight’s 122 honorees.
