The Manufacturing Institute will recognize 130 women with the Women in Manufacturing STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Award at a Washington, D.C. ceremony on April 10.

The Manufacturing Institute launched the STEP Ahead initiative in 2012 to bolster manufacturing’s attractiveness to women and to help improve the perception of careers in the industry among younger generations. Since 2013, it has annually awarded the STEP Ahead Award to honor women who demonstrate excellence and leadership in their careers and represent all levels of the manufacturing industry. The STEP Ahead Awards program will highlight each honoree’s story, including her unique achievements in manufacturing.
