Women represent about 51% of the global workforce.

Women can make a critical difference in an industry that is in dire need of more qualified, skilled workers. With the right credentials, women can fill the gap today and in the future.

But still represent only about 25% in manufacturing.

Why is there such a disparity?

  • Misinformation about what careers are available
  • General skepticism about the stability of the industry
  • Negative perception of requirements for physical strength and math proficiency
  • Lack of confidence

Despite efforts to encourage girls and young women to pursue STEM careers, male students are 3xs more likely to be interested.
