About The Expo

The event
Advance: Women in Manufacturing is designed to promote gender diversity and equity in Canada’s manufacturing sector.

Featuring some of the biggest influencers in the Canadian manufacturing sector as well as women who have trailblazed in their careers, the Advance: Women in Manufacturing event offers panel discussions, presentations, breakout sessions and more where speakers will explore the importance of fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce, share career advice and real-life experiences, recommend actions companies can take to recruit women and advance them to leadership positions, and much more.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with industry experts and thought leaders whose shared goal is to promote gender equity, diversity and inclusion in Canadian manufacturing.

The brand, ADVANCE
Diversity, inclusivity and equity (DI&E) are critical for success. According to the “Diversity wins” report by McKinsey, the most diverse companies are likely to be more profitable than less diverse ones. However, companies are finding it challenging to create bias-free work environments with an inclusive leadership and equal and fair opportunities for all employees. To facilitate conversations about advancing DI&E in the Canadian manufacturing sector, Annex Business Media’s Manufacturing Group has partnered on creating events, such as Advance: Women in Manufacturing, to help manufacturers transform their businesses with a systemic approach to DI&E.
