Women in Manufacturing 2024
March 6, 2024 at 1:00pm ET

A culture of inclusion fosters a positive work environment where all employees feel respected and valued. In manufacturing, diverse teams can lead to more creative solutions and improved product development processes. Inclusive workplaces tend to have higher levels of employee engagement.

It is, therefore, crucial to keep track of the progress that the Canadian manufacturing industry has made in recent years to advance women in the workplace. It is also necessary to identify and close existing gaps and explore avenues to continue the trajectory of positive growth towards a diverse, inclusive and equitable workspace where women in the industry can chart their careers without any barriers.

Annex Business Media’s Manufacturing Group is back with Advance: Women in Manufacturing to facilitate conversations on moving the dial and advancing women into positions of their choice.

Scheduled for March 6, the half-day virtual summit will feature experts working to create diverse and inclusive workspaces. Influencers in the Canadian manufacturing sector, as well as women who have trailblazed in their careers will share their experiences and strategies on climbing the career ladder.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with industry experts and thought leaders whose shared goal is to promote gender equity, diversity and inclusion in Canadian manufacturing.

We are currently finalizing speakers for this event, which is subject to change. If you have a proposal for a speaker, email Sukanya Ray Ghosh at or Nithya Caleb at
