    Last night, the Manufacturing Institute hosted our first joint STEP Forward event in Wichita, Kansas. Featuring two of the Institute's premier workforce programs, the STEP Women's Initiative and Heroes MAKE America, STEP Forward: Wichita highlighted D&I best practices with a special focus on women and veterans in science, technology, engineering and production careers.

    A special thank you to our panel of #MFGWomen  and #MFGvets:

    • Jenna Witten, Business Systems Analyst, Flint Hills Resources
    • Kristin Robert, Sr. Director, Operations Twin Aisle & Sikorsky Fuselage, Spirit AeroSystems, Inc.
    • Jennifer Barbour, Director of HR for Engineering & Defense, Textron Aviation

    And, as always, thank you to our sponsors of the event last night, without whom, these regional events wouldn't be possible:  Arconic Foundation, Spirit Aerosystems, SalesForce.
