The Manufacturing Institute has partnering with Deloitte, University of Phoenix, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers on the STEP Ahead initiative (women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Production). The STEP Ahead initiative was launched to examine and promote the role of women in the manufacturing industry through Recognition, Research, and Education/Leadership.
Kellie Johnson, President of ACE Clearwater Enterprises, was recently honored for making significant achievements in manufacturing through positive impact on her company and the industry as a whole.
“Manufacturing fulfills me on so many levels. I’ve had the opportunity to continue my family legacy as a third generation manufacturer servicing the aerospace industry where the US remains a global leader. I am proud to offer amazing career paths to the women and men who are the American workforce.”
