International Women's Network

Overview 

The WiM International Women’s Network (IWN) aims to connect the Association’s growing number of international members and deliver them opportunities to connect, share information and support one another.

This peer network will bring international industry topics to the forefront and discuss how those trends will affect the global manufacturing ecosystem. 

According to the World Manufacturing Foundation women make up 30% of employees in the manufacturing industry globally. United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) reports a higher concentration of women in manufacturing in Eastern Asia, South-Eastern Asia, Northern Africa and a lower concentration in Northern America, Europe, and the Middle East. 

The industries with the highest concentration of women are apparel, textiles, and food processing.

Present-day the Women in Manufacturing Association (WiM) supports more than 600 international members in 40 countries with our largest concentration of international members being in Canada, Mexico, India, Brazil and Germany.
