March is Women’s History Month. This annual observation gives us the chance to honor the many contributions women have made to manufacturing throughout this industry’s history despite a culture that hasn’t always welcomed those contributions. 

History isn’t just about the past, however; it gets written and rewritten every day. Women’s History Month also gives us an opportunity to celebrate and shine a well-earned spotlight on the many ongoing contributions of women to the advancement of manufacturing. To offer just a few examples from the Women in Manufacturing and SME member communities: 
  • Stephanie Locks-Hartle, a 2019 SME Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer who is leading and driving a new approach to implementing transformational manufacturing technology at Northrop Grumman;
  • Nuzha Yakoob, Head of Technology & Innovation at Festo, who is among the industry’s leaders in developing new robotics and automation applications in multiple industries;
  • Allison Giddens, president of Win-Tech, who developed a four-week advanced manufacturing virtual internship program to continue engaging students during the pandemic;
  • Jd Marhevko, a member of the inaugural class of the Women in Manufacturing Hall of Fame and Vice President of Quality for the ZF Division of Electronics and ADAS at ZF Group, who has helped transform automotive plants globally.
These are just a few of the thousands of women whose stories make up the narrative of today’s manufacturing industry.
