Women in Manufacturing™ (WiM) and Case Western Reserve
University's (CWRU) Weatherhead School of Management are creating
a Leadership Lab for Women in Manufacturing, which will provide executive education and training to WiM members in mid- to high-level management roles in manufacturing careers.
Scheduled to launch this spring, the Leadership Lab for Women in Manufacturing program consists of three sessions over
eight days on topics including Women in Manufacturing: Bias
Barriers and Opportunities; High-impact Leadership for Women in Manufacturing; and Skills and Strategies for Leading the
Way Forward in Manufacturing.
"WiM is thrilled to be partnering with Case Western Reserve's Weatherhead School of Management to offer this outstanding program to our members," explains Allison Grealis,
president of WiM. "As the only national trade association dedicated to providing year-round support to women in manufacturing careers, WiM is always looking for new ways to help our
members thrive. The Leadership Lab for Women in Manufacturing program is an example of our ongoing commitment to
women's leadership in the manufacturing sector today and
into the future."
Leadership Lab for Women in Manufacturing builds on the
success of the CWRU's Leadership Lab for Women in STEM
that was created in 2014 to provide professional and leadership development for women in male-dominated occupations.
Courses will be held on the CWRU campus and taught by faculty members Diana Bilimoria, Ph.D., Ellen Van Oosten, Ph.D.,
and Kathleen Buse, Ph.D.
"We are excited to be launching the Leadership Lab for
Women in Manufacturing to provide WiM members with the
tools, skills and competencies needed to create opportunities
for themselves in the manufacturing sector," says Buse, faculty

director, Leadership Lab for Women in STEM. "From our past
Leadership Labs, we have found that, within six months of finishing the program, 40 percent of the women had sought and
obtained a promotion. We look forward to working with WiM
members to help them leverage their strengths to achieve continued success in their careers."
This program is supported by the GE Foundation, whose
funding will allow women who work in small to mid-size manufacturing companies to participate.
Registration rates for the Leadership Lab for Women in Manufacturing program depend on the size of the company, and
scholarship opportunities may be available from WiM based on
specific eligibility requirements. For more information, Kristin Moore can be reached at 216.503.5700 or kmoore@womeninmfg.org.
Women in Manufacturing is a more than 550-member-strong
national association dedicated to supporting, promoting and
inspiring women who have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry. The group encourages the engagement of women
who want to share perspectives, gain cutting-edge manufacturing information, improve leadership and communication
skills, participate in sponsoring programs and network with
industry peers.
WiM is the only national association specifically dedicated
to supporting women in the manufacturing sector. It offers
year-round programming and a national directory for women
throughout the industry. mt
