Your Help Needed: Women in Manufacturing Study!

In 2015, the National Association of Manufacturers, The Manufacturing Institute, APICS and Deloitte released the Minding the Manufacturing Gender Gap report focusing on trends and strategies to recruit, retain and advance women in manufacturing roles.

NAM, the Institute, and Deloitte are now conducting a study to identify the impact that women in manufacturing have in their companies and in their communities across various roles. With the 5 year anniversary of the STEP Ahead Awards, we are also measuring the impact our honorees have had since their award. We need your help.

This is your opportunity to provide first-hand insights into factors that either attract or deter women in manufacturing, and your opportunity to identify the impact you make to increase the number of girls and women gaining interest and entering into the field of manufacturing. Please feel free to share this with women in your network, as we are hoping for a record response rate.

Please give us a few minutes of your time and complete our survey by clicking here.

Our ongoing research and collective voice can continue to raise awareness of underrepresentation of women in the industry and impact manufacturers’ talent strategies.

We thank you for your time and participation.

Jennifer McNelly, Executive Director, The Manufacturing Institute
