New digital resource for women in manufacturing by PMMI

The Packaging and Processing Women’s Leaderhip Network and OpX Leadership Network have released a digital resource that outlines five core characteristics that will help women navigate a career in manufacturing.

“Connect, Share, Inspire: Voices of Women in Packaging and Processing” is now available from PPWLN and the OpX Leadership Network, both part of PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.

In the pages, you will hear from subject matter experts in the areas of business acumen, negotiation, communication, emotional intelligence, and networking. You will also be inspired by the stories of women leaders who reflect on their personal experiences, offering advice to others entering the manufacturing and packaging industries.

The collaborative work of PPWLN, which serves to recruit, retain and advance women’s careers in packaging and processing, and the OpX Leadership Network, combines cross-functional knowledge and information with a single goal in mind — to show how instrumental people are to the manufacturing and packaging process, and how meaningful this journey is for the women who are here today— and who have yet to come aboard.

The “Connect, Share, Inspire: Voices of Women in Packaging and Processing” work product and other industry solutions are available for free download at:
