The fifth annual STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Awards will recognized manufacturing women who exemplify leadership within their companies. This national honor identified the best of the best women in the manufacturing industry, and further encouraged women to mentor and support the next generation of female talent to pursue manufacturing careers.        

 The 2017 STEP Ahead theme is IMPACT. And we’d like to see the impact you’ve made in your company, in your community, and even with yourself - whether it was through advocating for the industry, mentoring young women, engaging an employee resource group, leading as an ambassador for manufacturing education, or promoting personal development.  Share your story with us!
