Support. Promote. Inspire.

    Women in Manufacturing® (WiM) is a national association dedicated to supporting, promoting and inspiring women who are pursuing or have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry. WiM encompasses manufacturers of all types and welcomes individuals from every job function – from the shop floor to the C-Suite. This group encourages the engagement of women who want to share perspectives, gain cutting-edge industry information, improve leadership and communication skills, participate in partner programs and network with peers.

With manufacturing's skills gap, you can't only look at 50% of the population to fill it. Women have got to be recruited in every role…Manufacturers are realizing diversity in the workforce is important - change won't happen overnight, but it is happening."

Allison Grealis, President of WiM, in CNN Money

 Corporate Member

“When I was 14, I chose welding as the trade I would study through high school. My junior year I decided to make welding my career because it’s not often you get to turn your passion into a career. Also, I like the challenge of manufacturing—something about making things from scratch entices me.”

— Amanda Reel, Welder, TRUMPF Inc.

 Corporate member

“I encourage all of us to expose our daughters, nieces, neighbors and cousins to the modern way of manufacturing and show them what a terrific and rewarding place it is to work.”

—Cindy Logan, Senior Manager of Tobacco Processing, John Middleton Company, an Altria Co.

 Professional member

“I’ve found that “manufacturing” is not a typical word people use throughout a daily conversation if they are not involved in manufacturing. Through my involvement with WiM, I connected with a lot of the school districts in the area that are trying to push STEM.”

—Lauren Kirschler, Operations Manager, CPI Card Group
