The STEP Awards are presented by the Manufacturing Institute, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, University of Phoenix and Deloitte. They honor women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers and represent all levels of the manufacturing industry, from the factory floor to the C suite.
"These 122 women are the faces of exciting careers in manufacturing," said Jennifer McNelly, president, the Manufacturing Institute. "We chose to honor these women because they each made significant achievements in manufacturing through positive impact on their company and the industry as a whole. "
The STEP Awards are part of the larger STEP Ahead Initiative launched to examine and promote the role of women in the manufacturing industry through recognition, research, and best practices for attracting, advancing and retaining strong female talent.
