Recognizing Leaders in Manufacturing

03 October 2014 Manufacturing Industry Advisor Blog

This month we salute two organizations for raising the profile of leaders in the manufacturing industry.

First is the Manufacturing Institute for presenting the 2015 STEP Awards. We encourage readers to nominate a peer or colleague for this prestigious national award. The STEP Awards honor women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership at all levels of manufacturing, from the factory floor to the C-suite.

To nominate a peer or colleague for contributions to her company or the manufacturing industry, download an application. The deadline to submit a nomination is Oct. 10, 2014.

The second organization recognizing leaders in manufacturing is the Manufacturing Leadership Council, of which Foley is a member.

Nominations are currently open for the Manufacturing Leadership Awards, which honor manufacturing companies and individual leaders who have successfully set themselves apart from their competitors by delivering value to the organization and the industry as a whole. The project categories recognize leaders in the areas of supply chain, sustainability, next-generation leadership, new products, operational excellence, big data and advanced analytics, internet of things, among additional categories. Visit Manufacturing Leadership Awards for more information on the categories, qualifications and nomination process. All applications are due Nov. 1, 2014.
