AFS Exhibits at Women in Manufacturing Summit

September 28, 2015

AFS exhibited in a table-top booth during the Women in Manufacturing Summit Sept. 23-25 in Minneapolis to showcase metalcasting's role in STEM careers and the capabilities of the metalcasting industry. The Women in Manufacturing Summit brought together more than 300 women from the manufacturing sector for frank discussions, networking and professional development. 

AFS's booth presence highlighted how the Society is making outreach efforts to schools and the community and provided information to those in need of casting in their manufacturing business. 

In conjunction with the summit, AFS hosted a special networking dinner for Women in Metalcasting on September 23. Women from the industry gathered to discuss challenges and share best practices in their jobs, particularly when implementing change in their businesses and achieving work-life balance. 

Plans are in the works for another Women in Metalcasting event held in April 2016 in Minneapolis in conjunction with CastExpo16.
