WASHINGTON, -  Today, The Manufacturing Institute announced nominations for the 2016 STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Awards are open. The fourth annual STEP Ahead Awards, recognizing manufacturing women who display leadership within their companies, honor top performers in manufacturing and further encourage women to mentor and support the next generation of female talent. 

The STEP Ahead Awards, a part of the larger STEP Ahead initiative, began in 2012 to broadcast the role of women in manufacturing through recognition, research and best practices for attracting, retaining and advancing strong female leaders. In 2016, the Institute will honor 100 women and 30 Emerging Leaders, a category introduced last year to honor women under the age of 30 who have achieved unique accomplishments at the start of their careers.

The STEP Ahead Awards gives women all across the country a platform to showcase the incredible opportunities the industry has to offer, whether they are running the company, designing the next big product, or testing innovations on the shop floor.
