Minding the manufacturing Gap: How manufacturers can get their fair share of talented women
The Manufacturing Institute, APICS Supply Chain Council, and Deloitte worked together to understand why manufacturing isn’t getting its fair share of talented women. We surveyed more than 600 women in manufacturing, across all functional roles and levels, to get their gauge of how well companies are doing at attracting, retaining and advancing women. We also held an executive roundtable in Washington, D.C., where we convened senior leaders – representing a diverse group of some of the world’s largest manufacturing companies – to bring into focus their executive view of human capital and talent concerns.
