Women in Forging
Who We Are
Women in Forging is a Networking Committee created by the Forging Industry Association to help women in the forging industry connect, network, build relationships, mentor young women and empower females in the forging industry to continue to grow in leadership roles.
How We Can Help
- Leadership Training: Improve your leadership skills and get training on communication, delegation, time management, objective setting, and more - so that you can grow in your career.
- Industry Insight: Gain valuable industry insight from subject matter experts and other industry stakeholders.
- Workforce Development: Get access to prospective interns, apprentices and employees through a variety of channels including college and technical school connections. Discuss labor and workforce development with other women in the forging industry.
- Peer Networking: Connect and collaborate with other women in the industry through social media groups, virtual meetings and workshops, and in-person events.
On August 8, 2022, the Women in Forging committee hosted a virtual webinar titled “Women in Forging Panel Session: Advice for Advancing Your Career in the Forging Industry.” There, industry veterans discussed their career paths, how men can be allies, negotiating, finding mentors, imposter syndrome and inspiring the next generation of female leaders.
