CLEVELAND, OH—April 15, 2021—The Women in Manufacturing Education Foundation (WiMEF) announces that it is accepting nominations for the 2021 class of Women in Manufacturing Hall of Fame inductees.

Established in 2020, the Women in Manufacturing Hall of Fame honors women who have made exceptional contributions during the course of their established careers to support, promote and inspire women in the manufacturing industry.

Last year’s inaugural class of honorees included 15 outstanding leaders who were celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony at the conclusion of the 2020 WiM SUMMIT.

Nominations for the 2021 class are being accepted through June 1, 2021, and will be assessed based on a set of criteria. Honorees will be recognized at a special induction ceremony on October 6, 2021, in Cleveland, OH, during the 2021 SUMMIT.
