Women in Manufacturing Leadership Webinar Series | Manpower

From factory shutdowns to supply chain disruption to an increase in cyber attacks, no one could have anticipated the disruption that the pandemic would bring to 2020 and the manufacturing industry has felt the impact significantly. Women have felt it even more, being disproportionally impacted. But while the pandemic presented challenges and highlighted system flaws, it also brought an opportunity for flexibility, innovation, and to transform business plans and processes more quickly than we thought possible.

ManpowerGroup’s 4th Annual Women in Manufacturing Leadership virtual event series will highlight timely, critical topics each week during Manufacturing Month in October, including cybersecurity in the manufacturing enterprise, how to recruit, retain and grow women in manufacturing, green jobs, and the culture of inclusion. Join us as we explore these topics with industry and government leaders in manufacturing.
