About the Event

Time: 12:00 p.m. CT - 1:00 p.m. CT

Cybersecurity in the manufacturing enterprise has never been more important. It’s crucial to both US security and the security of organizations’ product lifecycle and supply chains, and its criticality has only been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic as bad actors take advantage of increased vulnerabilities.
The disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on women in the workforce can be converted into crucial supply pools of talent for the emerging roles in the cybersecurity frontier.
In this fireside chat style conversation, you’ll learn:
  • How Manufacturing can proactively manage Cyber Risk by understanding what roles and skills will be critical to your security going forward
  • Pathways for upskilling the talent you have today to the talent you need tomorrow
  • How to attract women to this quickly evolving field – and retain them


  • Chandra Brown, CEO, MxD
  • Trish Gyorey, Partner, McKinsey & Co.


  • Rebekah Kowalski, Vice President, Manpower Manufacturing

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.
