The 'Year of Women in Manufacturing' NJMEP Team:
NJMEP and its partners are working together to highlight 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.
