Discussion Groups:


I’m really excited to host an event led by so many vibrant women in an industry which has long been seen as a man’s world, certainly in the mainstream public eye. There are lots of exciting career opportunities in manufacturing, and it’s vital that younger people see both inspiring women and men in the careers that drive the nation’s economy. – Grace Gilling, Managing Director, The Manufacturer

I am really keen to promote the manufacturing sector as a whole as well as discuss ways to attract and achieve more diversity within it – Andrea Rodney, Director, Hone-All Precisions

What is Manufacturing People and Skills Summit?

Manufacturers on the right side of history will be talking about increasing British industry’s share of the UK talent pool – by boosting participation from women and minority groups in the manufacturing workforce. Whether UK manufacturing has a problem with women and diversity – or whether it’s the other way round – there is a problem that needs to be tackled if the country’s manufacturing renaissance is to be sustained to fix it.

Manufacturing People and Skills Summit is part of :

Digital Manufacturing Week
