On November 10th, Lori Luchak-Olund spoke at the Women are the Future of Manufacturing event. Attendee’s walked away with valuable insights on the role of mentorship to professional development and how we can better support and grow young women and girls in STEM.
• The manufacturing and transportation industries are full of opportunity. There are multiple career paths for young women to explore. Keeping an open mind can help lead you to develop and nurture a passion you may not have considered otherwise.
• Everyone has a role in advancing women in STEM. Ensuring that women are prepared for and aware of potential career paths requires a commitment from parents, educators, career counselors, community partners and companies themselves.
• Mentorship is key to professional development. Mentors can support your growth through a myriad of ways including providing guidance and feedback, supporting goal development, planning next steps and serving as a space to discuss how to navigate challenges.
• The Women MAKE America Mentorship Program was developed to help you find a mentor and plan your path to success. Click the button below to join and please share with others who may find this experience valuable.
