To demonstrate how far modern manufacturing has come and the need for diversity in the industry, PMMI’s Packaging & Processing Women’s Leadership Network (PPWLN) has an ongoing program in place that connects multiple generations of women currently in the industry or interested in learning more.
Now, PPWLN and the OpX Leadership Network have teamed up to deliver an easy to access digital resource that outlines five core characteristics that will help women navigate a career in manufacturing. In the following pages you will hear from subject matter experts in the areas of business acumen, negotiation, communication, emotional intelligence, and networking. You will also be inspired by the stories of women leaders who reflect on their personal experiences, offering advice to others entering the manufacturing and packaging industries.
