Women in Manufacturing
May 13, 2021 at
Women have comprised 29 per cent of Canada’s manufacturing workforce for the past 40 years – but representation is gradually increasing as key industry players lead the change on gender equity. Inspired by their ongoing efforts to dismantle the barriers that prevent or discourage women from entering the industry, and to facilitate conversations about advancing women into leadership positions, Annex Business Media’s Manufacturing Group is teaming up to host a new virtual summit called Women in Manufacturing, as well as launch an accompanying website: WomenInCanadianManufacturing.com.
Featuring some of the biggest influencers in the Canadian manufacturing sector, as well as women who have trailblazed in their careers, the Women in Manufacturing Virtual Summit offers a live panel discussion, presentations and on-demand sessions where speakers will explore the importance of fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce, share career advice and real-life experiences, recommend actions companies can take to recruit women and advance them to leadership positions, and much more.
Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with industry experts and thought leaders whose shared goal is to promote gender equity, diversity and inclusion in Canadian manufacturing.
We are working on finalizing speakers for this event, but if you have a proposal for a speaker, please email Kristina Urquhart, editor of Manufacturing AUTOMATION, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
