Making It Real: Girls & Manufacturing Summit
October 22 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
October 22, 2019 | Invitation-Only
The manufacturing industry is facing a serious skills gap, and part of this gap is the under-representation of women in the industry. The Making It Real: Girls & Manufacturing Summit is designed to introduce middle and high school girls to manufacturing and the exciting career opportunities it offers. The Summit invites over 100 young women to participate in hands-on activities and interactive demonstrations that showcase manufacturing, and speak with practitioners who are working in the field. Attendees will also get to participate in interesting experiential hands-on activities that showcase today’s manufacturing workplace and a chance to take a guided tour of Sacred Heart University’s new makerspace & manufacturing lab.
This year’s annual event will be held on October 22nd, 2019 on the West Campus of Sacred Heart University.
