AFS Exhibiting at Women in Manufacturing Summit

August 7, 2015

AFS will be displaying metalcasting’s role in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers at the Women in Manufacturing Summit Sept. 23-25 in Minneapolis. The Society’s presence at the event, which is geared to women with careers in manufacturing, will showcase the capabilities of metalcasting, outreach efforts to students, and professional opportunities within the industry.

The national event brings together women from across the country with the purpose of continued support to the attraction, retention and advancement of women in the manufacturing industry. AFS’ participation will establish metalcasting as a rewarding and meaningful avenue for STEM engagement and provide a casting sourcing contact point to attendees who buy or design castings. 

In conjunction with the summit, AFS will host a special event for Women in Metalcasting at FireLake Grill House & Cocktail Bar on September 23 at 6:30 pm. The event is open to all women in the area working in or pursuing careers in metalcasting. The event is free but registration is required. Click here to reserve your spot.
