Support. Promote. Inspire.

    Women in Manufacturing® (WiM) is a national association dedicated to supporting, promoting and inspiring women who are pursuing or have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry. WiM encompasses manufacturers of all types and welcomes individuals from every job function – from the shop floor to the C-Suite. This group encourages the engagement of women who want to share perspectives, gain cutting-edge industry information, improve leadership and communication skills, participate in partner programs and network with peers.

    The WiM Education Foundation (WiMEF) is the 501(c)(3) arm of Women in Manufacturing. Through the WiMEF, we provide and support effective and affordable educational opportunities for women in manufacturing. Learn more about the WiMEF mission and how to get involved.

Countdown Until 2019 SUMMIT:

With manufacturing's skills gap, you can't only look at 50% of the population to fill it. Women have got to be recruited in every role…Manufacturers are realizing diversity in the workforce is important - change won't happen overnight, but it is happening."

Allison Grealis, President of WiM, in CNN Money

“When I was 14, I chose welding as the trade I would study through high school. My junior year I decided to make welding my career because it’s not often you get to turn your passion into a career. Also, I like the challenge of manufacturing—something about making things from scratch entices me.”

— Amanda Reel, Welder, TRUMPF Inc.

 Corporate member

“I encourage all of us to expose our daughters, nieces, neighbors and cousins to the modern way of manufacturing and show them what a terrific and rewarding place it is to work.”

—Cindy Logan, Senior Manager of Tobacco Processing, John Middleton Company, an Altria Co.

 Professional member

“I’ve found that “manufacturing” is not a typical word people use throughout a daily conversation if they are not involved in manufacturing. Through my involvement with WiM, I connected with a lot of the school districts in the area that are trying to push STEM.”

—Lauren Kirschler, Operations Manager, CPI Card Group
