Nominations Now Open for MI STEP AHEAD Awards

The Manufacturing Institute’s (MI) STEP Women’s Initiative is dedicated to fostering a 21st-century manufacturing workforce that honors and promotes the role of women at all levels of the manufacturing industry, from the factory floor to the C-suite. One important way they do so is by recognizing exceptional women in manufacturing at the annual STEP Ahead Awards gala and empowering those honorees to pay it forward with tools to mentor and inspire the next generation. Over the past seven years, MI has honored more than 900 women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in science, technology, engineering, and production (STEP) careers—and has provided them with important leadership training to mentor tomorrow’s female manufacturing leaders through an associated two-day professional development program.

There are many deserving women in manufacturing in Florida. Please consider nominating peers or colleagues of yours who deserve recognition and whose stories can encourage others to follow their lead.  Visit to submit your nomination. For any questions or more information, feel free to access the Nominations Guide Toolkit which contains helpful information to get started or please contact the Institute’s STEP Ahead team at

The nomination period will close October 4, 2019.
