The Coalition For Women In Industry
About the Coalition
The Women in Manufacturing (WiM) Association has brought together top industry associations and organizations to launch a first-of-its-kind Coalition for Women in Industry. The coalition builds on WiM’s reputation for innovation and collaboration and offers a unique opportunity to strengthen unified efforts to attract, retain, and advance women in traditionally male-dominated industries. The group is comprised of senior executives, founders and board members of organizations and associations who are committed to this effort.
