Question: Manufacturing environments are often more difficult to cultivate the needed career/personal flexibility for hi-potential women leaders who also want to have families. In many cases, the entry-level female talent base in manufacturing is strong, but the same density of women is not produced/retained through all the career stages. Intricately tied to this question is how to make careers in manufacturing more appealing to women. Student insight will add depth to our real-time thinking on this subject.
