Maybe the most popular event of the annual conference is the Women in Manufacturing: Leaders and Influencers Breakfast. Although women make up 47% of the total workforce, they only comprise about 30% of all those employed in manufacturing industries. And only about 20% of executive leaders in manufacturing are women.
However, the industry’s attitude toward recruiting and promoting women is changing, the gender gap is narrowing and more and more women are beginning to find a place for themselves in a challenging industry traditionally dominated by men.
Several women executives gather to answer questions, offer advice, share stories about their rise through the ranks, and discuss their hope for the future.
