We are celebrating and discussing the growing number of women who are working in manufacturing.
Per the U.S. Department of Commerce, although women represent about 47% of the total workforce, they only make up about 30% of the 15.8 million people employed in manufacturing industries. Furthermore, only 1 in 4 manufacturing leaders are women, so the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion are top of mind for many.
Hear what these women think about their careers in manufacturing - challenges, likes, dislikes, and more.
