2019 STEP Ahead Honorees

The annual STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Awards and Gala on Thursday, April 11 in Washington, D.C. honored women in manufacturing for their contributions to the sector.  FLATE congratulates all the women honored this year and past years for their persistence and hard work supporting the manufacturing industry.
We encourage Florida companies to consider nominating women for this national recognition in order to inspire future generations to follow their role models and choose careers in the manufacturing industry.

Earlier this year, The Manufacturing Institute (MI) announced the recipients of the 2019 awards: 130 women from 101 different companies who will receive this national honor for their professional achievements and their commitment to their communities. These women hold jobs everywhere from the factory floor to the C-suite, proving that manufacturing offers a home to ambitious women of all backgrounds, talents and interests.  The STEP Awardees spend a day together for leadership development and networking in conjunction with the awards banquet.  Additionally, they all sign the STEP Ahead Pledge which encourages women in manufacturing to promote the importance of a diverse workforce in the industry, commit to encouraging women into manufacturing, and helping them succeed. Related to the pledge, STEP Ahead supports several regional networking events every year around the country.

For more information about the program or about future nominations, please email MI’s Assistant Vice President of Strategic Program Engagement AJ Jorgenson at ajorgenson@nam.org or visit their website.
