Attracting hundreds of women in manufacturing from across the country, WiM's annual SUMMIT is the only national conference of its kind. This networking and educational event features manufacturing plant tours, professional development tracks, industry roundtables, keynote presentations and social events to expand participants' networks. The SUMMIT location moves around the country giving attendees the opportunity to experience manufacturing and develop their networks throughout the United States.

"My experience and what I gained from participating in the WIM SUMMIT surpassed my already high expectations. The content was a great mix of trending and timeless information and applicable regardless of your career status, age or even whether you are male or female. I left with knowledge and passion to bring my career and team at work to its fullest potential."

"I cannot express the value of the WiM SUMMIT. I brought three women from my company and they were all blown away with the quality of speakers and the event as a whole."

"Sometimes I'm disappointed when I attend meetings where I'm the only woman in a room full of men. Seeing so many other women, especially in high positions, involved in the industry is empowering."

"This was my first WiM SUMMIT and I was very impressed with all the presenters, the "women helping women" spirit and the overall content of the conference. The material was very timely, relevant and delivered in a way that everyone could connect. I left excited and looking forward to Nashville!"

"I am impressed with the high caliber of attendees and the dynamics of the whole group. The organization has grown in numbers and the quality is excellent. The opportunities to meet with people one-on-one or in groups was easy to do."

"The WiM SUMMIT is an event that I look forward to every year. Many of the contacts I've made have turned into friends and it's empowering to realize that many of us have the same problems to be solved. It's exciting to network and strategize with this strong group of leaders."

"So glad I had the opportunity to attend and meet so many committed women doing so many impressive things in our industry!"

"As a first time WiM SUMMIT attendee, I was impressed by the caliber of the women attending the conference and the wealth and breadth of knowledge and experience exhibited by the speakers. I will definitely attend the 2016 event in Nashville."
