Foster a sustainable network of engaged professional women leveraging expertise and relationships, focused on the development of women leaders.
What is Women in Industry?
Originally founded as Women Industrial Supply Executives (W.I.S.E.) in 2012, the network has evolved into Women in Industry (WII) as it expands its reach within the industry and channel offering educational and networking opportunities for women at all levels within member companies.
The network delivers the annual Women in Industry Summit and other projects that support its Mission. Women engaged in the network will expand their professional and personal development that will make a difference in your company. Formal and informal networking will build connections within the industry.
