Women in Manufacturing Association Launches International Women’s Network

July 27, 2022 - The Women in Manufacturing® Association (WiM) is pleased to announce the launch of the International Women’s Network (IWN), which aims to connect the association’s growing number of international members and deliver them opportunities to connect, share information and support one another. 

WiM currently supports more than 600 international members in 40 countries, with the largest concentration of international members being in Canada, Mexico, India, Brazil and Germany. 

The IWN kicks off its programming with a virtual forum on August 25, 2022, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Participants will hear featured guest speaker Susanne Lauda, Director of Global Advanced Manufacturing Technology with AGCO Corporation, share her professional journey in manufacturing with WiM President and Founder Allison Grealis. The program also includes interactive roundtable discussions on how to survive and thrive in the male-dominated manufacturing space, and best practices on innovative ways that companies are supporting and advancing women. More information, including free registration, is available on the IWN webpage

“As WiM membership continues to grow internationally, we are thrilled to bring networking opportunities to this community through the launch of our International Women’s Network,” said WiM President Allison Grealis. “A taskforce of WiM members, led by Chair Jeff White of Robinson+Cole, was formed earlier this year to discuss the needs of our international members and to develop programming and a peer network to meet those needs. As a result, the IWN was created. We look forward to offering quarterly IWN forums that provide international insights into key industry topics.” 

WiM’s IWN will follow its virtual August kickoff program with an in-person forum in Stuttgart, Germany, on November 2, 2022. This event will include panel discussions, workshops, plant tours and more. Those interested in learning more can complete a brief form to get up-to-date information. 

The IWN virtual series and in-person forum in Germany are sponsored by Amazon and Robinson+Cole. WiM welcomes additional supporters and sponsors of its IWN programming. Interested companies should contact Kay Adams at kadams@womeninmfg.org for details. 

The Women in Manufacturing® Association is a more than 14,000-member-strong association dedicated to supporting, promoting and inspiring women who have chosen a career in the manufacturing industry. For more information, visit www.womeninmanufacturing.org.

 

Gainesville, GA (June 22, 2022) For many years, The Harris Products Group has provided financial support for a non-profit just down the street from its Gainesville, Georgia, facility. The organization, Sisu, brings educational, therapeutic, nursing and support services to children with special needs in 16 counties in northeast Georgia. Sisu’s integrated learning environment allows children from 6 weeks to 6 years with special needs to learn and interact alongside their typically developing peers.

This spring, Harris donated $25,000, bringing its total support over the years to more than $285,000. These donations have helped build new classrooms, improved playgrounds and assisted with Sisu’s administrative costs. 

“At Harris, we’re proud to continue our annual charity contribution to Sisu, our friend and neighbor,” said Melissa Nolan, Human Resources Manager at Harris.Over the years, many of our employees have had children enrolled at Sisu and we are happy to be able to support them both financially and as a good neighbor.

Sisu is a Finnish concept that relates to inner determination, persistence, grit, bravery, resilience, hardiness and indomitable spirit. This is the mindset that Sisu encourages to help these children reach beyond perceived capabilities and take action against all odds.

More information about Sisu can be found at mysisu.org.
