Summer Leadership Conference 2019
We celebrated our 4th annual Summer Leadership Conference (SLC) on Monday – Tuesday, July 22 – 23 in Louisville, KY. Generously hosted by GE Appliances, a Haier Company, the SLC is a special event for WiM’s National Board of Directors and Corporate company representatives. 
This exclusive meeting brought together more than 75 leaders from an array of manufacturing organizations for two days of best practice sharing, benchmarking, and networking. Attendees enjoyed interactive roundtable discussions, a branding workshop, presentations given by fellow Corporate members, and an off-site networking reception complete with a distillery tour and bourbon tasting. 
Here's what attendees are saying about the event: 

"Fabulous mix of presenters and topics. The commitment from GE's leadership team really exceeded my expectations and serves as a model for future hosts of the Summer Leadership Conference. It was impressive, valuable, and incredibly inspiring." 

"Touring GE's facility was wonderful! It gives insight into how other companies handle manufacturing processes and shows the difference between very high and low volume manufacturing. I also really enjoyed hearing from male allies. Finally, it was very helpful to hear how other organizations are making the effort to improve their culture and be more inclusive."

"Networking with other WiM members was great. The panels and presentations were also very good!"
