Female manufacturing professionals give tips for success

Women new to a career in manufacturing may face challenges working in a male-dominated industrial environment. An article on thomasnet offers advice for overcoming challenges and building a successful career.

The female leaders interviewed for the article have succeeded in manufacturing roles. Their advice is summarized in three tips:

    Build credibility — Learn the ins and outs of an industry and processes that are beyond the scope of your job description.

    Network and Seek Mentors — Women in industry should know “that they’re not alone and there’s a large population,” including other female professionals standing by to support the new professional.

    Keep Trying and Take Risks — “Take each challenge as a learning experience instead of something that derails you.”

These points dovetail with actions recommended by AWESOME leaders in the upcoming 2019 AWESOME Action Agenda. The new Agenda — set to be released first at CSCMP EDGE September 15-18 – contains “Seven Smart Moves to Make Bigger Waves for Women’s Leadership.” Watch for more details soon.
