Join WESST Farmington Women’s Business Center and NM Manufacturing Extension Partnership for Manufacturing Days as we celebrate women in Manufacturing. Manufacturing has traditionally been a male-dominated industry—fewer than one third of manufacturing employees are women. Working women who are moms and leaders within their family and community often go unrecognized and balancing of work life is particularly tough on women. Though there have been improvements in recent years, women are still under represented in the manufacturing industry.
To inspire future women in the industry and recognize those that are paving the way; we want to start a conversation about what can be improved. Join us for a panel presentation with Women in Manufacturing where we start a greater conversation around closing the opportunity gap, showcase the opportunities that abound in the manufacturing sector, and shine light on the impact women are making in manufacturing.
