Over the next five years, the Manufacturing Institute’s Women MAKE Mentorship Program will create a nationwide movement designed to change perceptions by training more than 1,000 female mentors and helping them connect to younger women in the industry and beyond by engaging with women in four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, high schools and middle schools. The Women MAKE Mentorship Program acts on decades of research and more than a decade of impact to help close the gender gap in manufacturing.

This program is an opportunity for women in the manufacturing industry to form a relationship that can provide professional guidance on how to navigate challenges and career advancement.
