Nominations for The Manufacturing Institute's 2021 STEP Ahead Awardsdeadline extended to October 30, 2020Take a moment to nominate your peers or colleagues now-so they can get the recognition they deserve and in doing so, help encourage more women to pursue promising careers in modern manufacturing. Please visit www.themanufacturinginstitute.org/nominate to submit your nomination.
The Manufacturing Institute's STEP Women's Initiative is dedicated to fostering a 21st-century manufacturing workforce. Our goal is to shrink the gender gap and to foster innovation by helping women in the industry build networks and hone their leadership skills. We work to identify and elevate the role models who can inspire the next generation.
One important way we do this is by recognizing exceptional women in manufacturing at the annual STEP Ahead Awards gala and empowering those honorees to pay it forward with tools to help build the modern manufacturing workforce.
Since 2012, we've honored more than 1,000 women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in Science, Technology, Engineering and Production (STEP) careers-and we've provided them with important leadership training to mentor tomorrow's female manufacturing leaders through an associated two-day professional development program.
If your peers or colleagues deserve recognition and their stories can encourage others to follow their lead, be sure to nominate them now!
