Woman in Manufacturing Education Foundation IMPACT

See What We've Achieved Thanks To Your Contributions!

With contributions from our donors to the WiMEF, we have impacted 10,000+ manufacturing professionals and graduated 300+ individuals to date with our three educational programs and our Virtual Learning Series designed to help professionals at all levels in their careers!

The WiMEF is a tool to allow us to design and develop training and educational programs and services to support the advancement and development of women at all levels of their manufacturing careers. Since its inception in 2016, the WiMEF has grown to 3 educational programs and a Virtual Learning Series with our donor's contributions. Your donations have allowed us to launch a new successful program in 2021, the Empowering Women in Production. Thank you so much for your support and passion for our mission.
