Although manufacturing has come a long way on the diversity front, women still represent a minority of the leaders and entrepreneurs in the industry. It is therefore all the more important for organizations like ‘Women in Manufacturing’ to hold educational and networking events so that women can connect with others in the field to lear from their experiences and career journeys.
Stacey Schroeder is the President and Founder of EVelop, and Coral Huffmaster is a Value Improvement Project Engineer at Polaris Industries. Both are heavily involved in the Women in Manufacturing organization regionally and at the national level as well. They joined Scott Luton and special guest host Allison Giddens, President of Win-Tech, for this episode to share their key takeaways from the 2021 Women in Manufacturing summit.
Of particular importance are Stacey and Coral’s observations and comments about:
- Why it is critical for all innovators to have someone who will challenge their ideas, tell them the truth, and force them to think outside the box
- Approaches to attracting bright, aspiring young women to consider starting careers in manufacturing and engineering
- How they think manufacturing can be changed for the better, creating opportunities and success for all individuals and companies
