Women make up 47% of the U.S. labor force but just 29% of the manufacturing workforce. As the U.S. manufacturing industry faces significant skilled-labor shortages and plants contend with critical leadership transitions at all levels, women are playing a crucial role in evolving the industry for the future.
In light of this, Influential Women in Manufacturing (IWIM), in partnership with Plant Services and its sister publications, wants to know: What does career development look like at your company? Is gender diversity on your company's radar? What opportunities have for career development have you seized – or created for yourself?
We invite you to take Influential Women in Manufacturing's first-ever Career Development and Gender Diversity survey. Your responses will inform future workforce stories on InfluentialWomeninManufacturing.com and will be included in a dedicated special report that will be available for complimentary download in fall 2019
Both men and women—from entry-level staff to executive team members—are encouraged to complete the survey. The results of the survey will be turned into a special report available for download in fall 2019.
