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.
“Manufacturing and related industries are at a critical juncture,” said WiM Founder and President Allison Grealis. “We need more women to fill open skilled positions and assume leadership roles. The challenges we face and the opportunities we hope to seize are too great for any one organization to take on alone. By combining efforts, we can combat outdated stereotypes and tackle workplace inequities in order to help women—and our industries—thrive.”
Coalition Mission: To work to attract, retain and advance women in manufacturing, with the goal of achieving a new norm in the industry: one in which women and men have equal power, status, and opportunity.
