The second STEP Awards will identify and highlight women who have demonstrated excellence in manufacturing. The STEP Awards recognize women at all levels of manufacturing, from the factory floor to the C-suite. The STEP Awards call for women in Science, Technology, Engineering or Production roles who have made significant achievements in manufacturing through their positive impact on a company's product development, process improvement, project, sale, or other similar activities.
The STEP Awards are part of the larger STEP Ahead initiative, founded last year to examine and promote the role of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Production through recognition, research, and best practices for attracting, advancing, and retaining strong female talent.
The 2014 STEP Awards Dinner Program will be hosted on February 6th, 2014 at the Andrew W Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC.
