Research shows that diverse companies outcompete those that lack diversity.

STEP Forward provides women in the industry with an opportunity to hear from industry leaders, connect with their peers, and learn best practices they can bring back to their company.

These networking events are held with manufacturers to discuss current strategies and develop new concepts for advancing and retaining female talent.  It is a chance for women to connect with their peers and learn from each other’s successes.
