Honoring The Past, Present and Future of Women Manufacturers
The US has a long tradition of promoting diversity and inclusion (D&I) in both the public and private sectors, with legal frameworks, programs and policies aimed at shaping more equitable and welcoming work environments. On numerous levels, it has become imperative to make workplaces amenable to—and represented by—all groups, whether differentiated by gender, age, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, or by experiences such as educational background, military service or physical disabilities. Today, leaders recognize that D&I efforts need to be stepped up further and are increasingly tethering D&I to overall management performance, company innovation progress—and even the bottom line.
MFG Day encourages companies and educational institutions to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders.
Women are critical to manufacturing’s future and represent one of its largest untapped talent pools.
The Manufacturing Institute is committed to helping today’s American Veterans become tomorrow’s manufacturing leaders.
