CRAIN’S NOTABLE WOMEN IN MANUFACTURING RECEPTION

July 25, 2019

VENUE:
MxD INNOVATION CENTER
ADDR:

1415 N Cherry Ave
Chicago, IL 60642

Manufacturing is helping to turn Illinois’ economy around, and the overall sector ended 2018 by registering its 28th straight month of growth. But when it comes to gender diversity, American manufacturing has room for improvement: As of December, women represented just 29 percent of its workforce. In addition to hiring and training more women, the Manufacturing Institute recommends that manufacturers increase the visibility of female leaders at all levels of business to shrink the sector’s gender gap.

This reception is dedicated to celebrating the Crain’s Notable Women in Manufacturing for 2019, of which includes MxD’s CEO, Chandra Brown, along with 30 other women that are among the top leaders at more than two dozen Chicago-area manufacturing organizations.
