    Busy with MFG Day and hoping for an extension? We’ve got you covered.

    Nominations for The Manufacturing Institute’s 2020 STEP Ahead Awards have been extended to Friday, October 11, 11:59 pm EST.

    The Institute’s STEP Ahead Awards provide individuals and companies with a national platform to honor and promote the role of women at all levels of manufacturing—from the factory floor to the C-suite—who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in science, technology, engineering and production (STEP) careers.

    To date, The Manufacturing Institute has honored more than 900 women. Through nominating individuals for the STEP Ahead Awards, companies can showcase the outstanding achievements made by leading women in their industry and help foster a 21st-century manufacturing workforce that gives women the recognition and support they deserve.

    The annual STEP Ahead Awards gala is an opportunity to recognize exceptional women in manufacturing, and the associated two-day professional development program equips honorees with the tools to mentor and inspire the next generation—and inspires them to pay it forward.

    Don’t miss out on the last chance to recognize an outstanding female leader in the manufacturing. Go to to nominate today!
