Exploring the gender gap

Women in manufacturing 2015 study

The 2015 Women in manufacturing study: Exploring the gender gap was commissioned by The Manufacturing Institute, APICS, and Deloitte to understand why manufacturing is not attracting, retaining, and advancing its fair share of talented women. From addressing the talent shortage to improved financial performance, the business case for increasing the share of women in the manufacturing workforce is persuasive. Based on survey responses from over 600 women professionals predominantly across the manufacturing industry, the study shares perspectives for the path forward to help address the talent issue.
