The 2022 STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Awards will take place in Washington, D.C. on April 28, 2022.

Celebrating a Decade of Elevating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Production

Now entering its 10th year, the STEP Ahead Awards have recognized, celebrated and supported the accomplishments of more than 1,200 outstanding women in manufacturing who have had a positive impact on their companies, communities and future generations. Together, STEP Ahead honorees and emerging leaders have impacted and inspired more than 300,000 others through mentoring and volunteering as ambassadors for the industry.

Recognizing women at all levels of manufacturing, from the shop floor to the C-suite, this national honor gives manufacturers an opportunity to showcase existing female talent and provide role models that can speak to both the opportunities ahead and the transformation of the industry.
