Opportunities Abound for Women in Manufacturing

Opportunities Abound for Women in Manufacturing

Sure, 50 or even 25 years ago, seeing a female worker in a manufacturing plant was an anomoly.

Today, however, there’s no limit to what women can do in the ever-growing manufacturing field. It’s all a matter of being prepared, said Tracie Roberts, vice president of Montville Plastics, at a recent Geauga Economic Leadership breakfast.

Along with two other women in manufacturing leadership positions, Roberts explained that women with and without college degrees can make an impact. Younger women can begin in high school by pursuing a trade or vocational school for training or, if a traditional college is desired, seeking a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) degree.

Roberts believes that women should seek out a mentor in an area in which they would like to succeed, helping them to define and achieve their career goals.
