This lunch is part of an ongoing effort between NJMEP, Manufacturers and partners to bring together influential women manufacturing leaders that continue to drive the ‘MADE in New Jersey’ forward. Women are a largely underrepresented demographic in the manufacturing industry. Only about 30% of the 15.8 million people employed in manufacturing industries are women and even less, 1 in 4 women in leadership positions are women according to the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) ¹. This creates countless issues downstream for the industry. Challenges range from workforce shortages to a lack of diverse perspectives in decision-making. The ‘Year of Women in Manufacturing’ is an initiative to highlight those women leaders that are here in the state of New Jersey. It provides them and their communities a foundation to be heard, recognized, and a chance to encourage the next generation of women manufacturing professionals." } ["sf_event_start_date"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(13) "July 25, 2024" } ["sf_event_start_time"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(13) "11:30:00.000Z" } ["sf_event_end_date"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(13) "July 25, 2024" } ["sf_event_end_time"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(13) "15:30:00.000Z" } ["sf_sync_id"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(5) "72630" } ["_sf_sync_id"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(19) "field_620bbf9ab741e" } ["sf_salesforce_id"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(18) "701UY00000Avi8XYAR" } ["sf_event_maximum_attendees"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(1) "0" } ["sf_event_status"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(6) "Active" } }
