Virtual Learning Series

About the Virtual Learning Series 

The WiM Virtual Learning Series consists of monthly webinars about various industry-related subjects relevant for women who work in manufacturing. Topics are geared towards cultivating leadership skills, and a carefully selected knowledge expert hosts each webinar. Each webinar includes action-oriented and solution-driven objectives to help participants succeed in the manufacturing sector.

Virtual Learning Series webinars are a free WiM-member benefit, made possible through the generosity of PrincipalSM. WiM members are encouraged to register for each learning opportunity, as all registrants receive a recording of the presentation immediately following each webinar. All webinars are recorded and archived in the Virtual Learning Library where they are available to WiM members at any time.

This program is open to all people, and is free to WiM members.
