In the most recent Thomas Industrial Report, Career Advancement for Manufacturing Annual Report, conducted in partnership with Women in Manufacturing, Thomas gathered valuable information on the make-up of the manufacturing industry, common perceptions and company stances, and even direct insight from participants. Research revealed that women make up 33% of the manufacturing workforce and 26% hold leadership positions. This may be due to the lower number of women seeking out a career in manufacturing (30%) compared to men (46%). However, men (80%) and women (75%) are both likely to recommend a career in manufacturing once part of the sector. Additionally, progress is being made as respondents agreed that women have made significant progress in industry over the last five years.
