Donate to the Women in Manufacturing Education Foundation (WiMEF)

Did you know that women make up only 29% of the manufacturing workforce?*  We have certainly come a long way but have quite a ways to go in order to achieve equal representation to our male counterparts in the industry.

One way in which the Women in Manufacturing (WiM) Association has taken steps to ensure that women are able to obtain a career in manufacturing and succeed to their fullest potential is by offering affordable and effective educational opportunities through our Education Foundation. The Women in Manufacturing Education Foundation (WiMEF) does just that. The WiMEF leads the way in offering cutting-edge programming which gives women the tools needed to succeed in manufacturing.
