The manufacturing industry has made tremendous strides in recruiting, retaining, and advancing women, however there is still a long way to go. Today, women make up less than 30 percent of the manufacturing workforce and even less are in the C-Suite of those companies.

Join us on June 12, as Jennifer Scanlon, President and CEO, USG Corporation, discusses why it’s important for the next generation of women to “Do the Math” and use STEM as a way to expand their career choices. She will also share how she navigated the manufacturing world and how she achieves a “big-picture balance” when it comes to work and family.

At this program, we will also present The Club’s Corporate Citizen of the Year award.
