More Than 1,000 Attendees Cultivated their Community and Connections at SUMMIT 2022

Posted By: Jackie Bloom Blog,

Women in Manufacturing celebrated its 12th annual SUMMIT on October 10 - 12, 2022.  Attendees participated in-person in Atlanta, GA and virtually and had opportunities to enjoy plant tours at leading manufacturing facilities and engage in professional development sessions, panels, and inspiring keynotes.

Bringing together more than 1,000 manufacturing professionals from 263 companies in 7 countries and 45 U.S. states, participants were able to cultivate their community and connections through powerful networking; discussions on "Harnessing the Power of a Multigenerational, Manufacturing Workforce to Solve Today's Issues" and "Cultivating an Inclusive Environment through Allyship"; keynotes covering topics such as "Amplify Your Impact: Effective Everyday Advocacy" and " Transformative Leadership: Navigating Change That Inspires Connections and Enables Transformation"; and through local plant tours at Finishing Dynamics, YKK, Delta, Shaw Industries, Altium Packaging, Mars Wrigley, AGCO, and the Mercedes Benz Stadium with Southwire. 

Hear what participants had to say:

  • "I highly recommend participating in this. I participated virtually and have so many take-aways to present to my team. There is a wide range of presentations for people to choose from, ranging from emotional well-being in the workplace to sustainability. There is something for everybody!" 
  • "WiM SUMMIT is a phenomenal place to benchmark best practices, lessons learned, and get ideas to bridge the gap in current manufacturing environment challenges."
  • "SUMMIT is truly the best professional and personal development opportunity for women in the manufacturing industry. With dozens of amazing sessions that touch so many aspects of working in the industry along with intentional opportunities for networking and meeting incredible fellow women. Thank you WiM National for dedicating your time and effort to host such a powerful conference!"
  • "This was my first SUMMIT and I made some new connections and grew my internal network. I'm never, ever, in a room with this many women and allies and it was wonderful to learn in this supportive environment."
