KEYNOTE:
Women in STEM: The Future of Equality Leadership

Technology advancements continue to have an enormous impact on industry today. But one of the most profound shifts taking place actually has to do with people and the growing recognition that in order to be successful companies must move toward a more diverse workforce and equality in the workplace. Cindy Bolt, SVP of Manufacturing, Automotive and Energy at Salesforce, will highlight how female leaders in top organizations like Salesforce can be not only trailblazers when it comes to their own careers, but how women can take a leadership role in redefining industry norms.

PANEL DISCUSSION:
Diversity in the Manufacturing Workplace: Challenges and Opportunities

The case for diversity in the workplace and the positive benefits are clear. But with a looming shortage of skilled labor in the manufacturing sector, companies are hard pressed to find enough qualified workers at all, much less achieving the kind of workforce diversity that most acknowledge is an imperative today. In this panel discussion, some of manufacturing’s greatest minds tackling this issue will explore the state of workforce diversity at all levels in manufacturing, the progress (and in some cases lack of progress) that’s been made, and what todays companies can do to overcome obstacles and help build a pipeline of qualified workers for the factories of the future.
