Goodwin College will host its first Women of Manufacturing Summit on Wednesday, May 16.

The summit brings together individuals interested in encouraging women to consider career options in business and manufacturing.

The program will include discussions with industry leaders on dispelling myths about today’s manufacturing environments; the variety and volume of job opportunities; compensation issues; and shift options for women, particularly those balancing family responsibilities and continuing education.

The conference will be held from 5:30 to 8 pm at Goodwin College’s Business and Manufacturing Center.

Attendees will also meet and network with industry professionals and current manufacturing students. Information will also be available on Goodwin’s educational programs.

The event is free but registration is appreciated.
