The Women in Manufacturing Association (WiM) has announced that its second annual Moms in MFG virtual event will take place on August 11, 2022. Moms in MFG is a year-round event series and community focused on supporting mothers and caregivers who work in the manufacturing sector.
“WiM has been supporting women in manufacturing for over a decade,” said WiM President Allison Grealis. “Through this work, we identified a need for content specifically for women that balances the demands of manufacturing and motherhood. The success of our inaugural Moms in MFG event proved that instinct right. Moms in MFG is a natural extension of WiM’s commitment to supporting women in manufacturing in all aspects of their careers and lives, and we look forward to our second annual event.
The theme for the 2022 Moms in MFG conference is “Rise Together, Thrive Together” in recognition of the event’s emphasis on community and collaboration. Participants meet online – a format that allows participants to join from anywhere and fit panel presentations and roundtables into busy schedules. Above all, participants will always have invaluable opportunities to share their own experiences and exchange ideas for success in their professional and personal lives.
Sponsored by Corning and Southwire Company, this year’s program includes a number of interesting sessions, including: a report on the state of mothers and caregivers in the industry; tips for becoming an advocate for yourself as a working parent or carer; a resilience workshop; a round table on corporate support for mothers and caregivers; and panel discussions on tackling burnout, balancing careers during the infant and toddler stages, balancing work and personal life, and changing parenting roles. See the full program and list of speakers on the Moms in MFG event webpage.
