PMA to Host Inaugural Women in Manufacturing Symposium

October 1, 2011

Be part of history and join more than 150 women executives, managers and supervisors as they gather in Cleveland, OH, on October 25-26, 2011, at the first-ever annual Women in Manufacturing Symposium.

This unique networking and educational event, designed exclusively for women who have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry, will provide an opportunity for participants to share perspectives, network with colleagues and hear from leading female executives in the manufacturing sector. The event will feature seminars on how women can improve their leadership and communication skills and participate in mentoring programs.

The keynote address will be given by Moira Forbes, vice president and publisher of ForbesWoman—a multi-media platform serving successful women in business and leadership. The symposium also will feature panel discussions on “Manufacturing Best Practices” and “The Importance of Sponsoring and Mentoring.” Panelists include representatives from high-profile manufacturers including Boeing, Ford Motor Company, GE Appliances and American Greetings.

“The first-ever PMA Women in Manufacturing brings together women in manufacturing to focus on best practices and interaction that will provide another platform for engaging the industry,” said Kellie Johnson, president of ACE Clearwater Enterprises and board member of the National Association of Manufacturers. “Manufacturing is at a pivotal point in our nations’ history. This event represents productive knowledge, innovation and enterprise and will help shape the future of manufacturing through involvement in policy, education and networking.”
