Austin, TX, -  The Manufacturing Institute is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the second STEP Awards.

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.  This past February, the inaugural STEP Awards were hosted in Washington, DC to honor 122 women from over 90 companies for their achievements.

The STEP Awards are part of the larger STEP Ahead initiative, a joint program launched by The Manufacturing Institute, Deloitte, the University of Phoenix, the Precision Metalforming Association, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.  The STEP Ahead initiative was 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.
