Honoring women who have made outstanding contributions during the course of their established careers in manufacturing, the US-based Women in Manufacturing (WiM) organization has recognized SMS President Nadine Crauwels.
The Women in Manufacturing Hall of Fame honors women who have made outstanding contributions during the course of their established careers in manufacturing. Recipients include women who are dedicated to supporting, promoting, and inspiring women in the manufacturing industry, based on criteria such as making exceptional contributions to the advancement of women in manufacturing, facilitating and creating programs that motivate young women to choose careers in manufacturing, enabling and encouraging other manufacturing women to advance in their careers, and/or creating or leading innovations that promote manufacturing improvements and increased competitiveness.
As one of 15 women to be inducted into the foundational class, Nadine Crauwels was chosen by a panel of Women in Manufacturing (WiM) and Women in Manufacturing Education Foundation (WiMEF) Board Members.
According to Ms. Crauwels, “I am so thankful to be chosen as part of this very first Woman in Manufacturing Hall of Fame class. I am also honored and proud to be alongside this impressive group of women who paved the way for other women in manufacturing. We are on an important journey that needs our continuous attention to strive and drive for a diverse and inclusive manufacturing industry.”
Sean Holt, President of Sandvik Coromant for the Americas, adds, “We are all proud of Nadine’s recognition by Women in Manufacturing. She is not only an outstanding leader for our company, Nadine truly embodies every quality that the Women in Manufacturing organization represents and she serves as an inspiration and role model to us all. As a testimony to that, we hosted an internal contest in her honor where employees within our sales area could express how Nadine’s leadership inspires them for a chance to take part in the Women in Manufacturing SUMMIT where they will experience virtual plant tours, professional development sessions, roundtable discussions on important topics, and inspiring keynotes.”
Inductees will be honored virtually on October 1, 2020. Registration to this event is complimentary, but attendees are encouraged to support the Women in Manufacturing Education Foundation in lieu of a registration fee. The donations will support the advancement of women in manufacturing through various WiM educational offerings.
