WiM | Wisconsin Chapter Night in Milwaukee

The event brought together women working in the manufacturing industry to network, share ideas with one another and learn about the WiM organization.

Importance of STEM Programs

After attending the Manufacturing Matters conference Thursday, Feb. 27, three students shared their perspectives and excitement for their future careers in the manufacturing industry; the exact enthusiasm that manufacturing companies are looking for. But currently, manufacturing companies are having difficulty finding these excited students to fill positions. Why is it so difficult to find students that are interested in manufacturing positions?

Women in Manufacturing

Today, Mary Barra makes history as the first female to lead an automaker as General Motors Company’s CEO. This is a great opportunity for women in the manufacturing/auto industry to see the potential that they can reach. Despite this exciting milestone, statistics are showing that women in the industry are losing jobs, while men are gaining them. Because of this, we ask ourselves why are women underrepresented in the manufacturing industry and what can we do about it?
