Women constitute one of manufacturing’s largest pools of untapped talent. Women total about 29 percent of the manufacturing workforce, far below their representation in the U.S. labor force. Research by the Institute, Deloitte and APICS Supply Chain Council found that STEP Ahead Honorees and Emerging Leaders are promoted more often, have a clearer vision of their career path and aspirations and are committed to encouraging future generations of women to pursue manufacturing careers. In five years, STEP Ahead Award winners impacted more than 300,000 individuals, engaging in efforts to develop women in their careers and the next generation.
According to Manufacturing journalist TR Cutler, “An aspect of the #metoo movement is that women have expressed apprehensive in the past in working in male-dominated sectors like manufacturing. No longer. Women recognize the value of the industrial sector and bring expertise, talent, and levels of innovation much needed in manufacturing. Our research predicts gender equality in both compensation and percentage of the industrial workforce by 2024.”
