Excellence Abounds in Our Industry

Excellence Abounds in Our Industry

This is an exciting time in industrial automation as new capabilities such as advanced data analytics, data-driven operations, enhanced cybersecurity and more support manufacturing excellence. These advancements expand human possibility by combining the creativity of people with smart machines. People are the key. So, I’m thrilled to invite you to recognize game-changers in your organization by nominating a colleague or colleagues as Influential Women in Manufacturing (IWIM). Submit your nomination form by March 31.

IWIM is a program honoring women who are creating change within their organization and/or the industry as a whole — women who are moving their team forward, whatever their role in the company, and who serve to inspire and advocate for the next generation of industry professionals.

IWIM was launched last year by Putman Media, publisher of The Journal and other publications, to spotlight women making a difference in manufacturing and industrial production. The inaugural class consisted of 22 women from a range of industries nominated by their peers. You can download a free eBook that profiles each of the winners.

One of those 22 game-changers is Linda Freeman, business development manager at Rockwell Automation. She works with multiple product groups to develop new products and features for the entertainment and theme-park industry. You can learn about her achievements in the eBook mentioned above or on the IWIM website. Freeman shares her thoughts about women in manufacturing and the IWIM program in her YouTube video.

Women are making a difference in every industry, so recommend someone you know deserves the recognition. Submit your nomination form by March 31. Until next time….
