  • New Partnership with Politico

    Last week, we announced the exciting new partnership between Politico’s Women Rule and The Manufacturing Institute’s STEP Women’s Initiative.

    As part of that partnership, Politico’s Anna Palmer recorded an episode of the Women Rule podcast at the STEP Ahead Awards last week in which she talked with Framebridge Founder and CEO Susan Tynan. The podcast is now live!

    The partnership will continue with a series of regional STEP Forward events throughout the year—all aimed at closing the gender gap in manufacturing and spotlighting the high-paying, high-tech career opportunities for women in the industry.
