Women in Manufacturing

This Women in Manufacturing Lunch Series is by invitation only.  If you would like an invitation and are a woman working for a manufacturing company, please contact tamara.wamsley@udri.udayton.edu.

This series is designed to empower women in manufacturing, help to increase the number of women who are interested in manufacturing roles, and to facilitate real conversations that are focused on topics that matter to women in the industry.  We will encourage women to work in manufacturing, address tough issues, and identify solutions to challenges; in an environment that lifts and strengthens one another both personally and professionally.
