Why attend?

Women and Diversity in Manufacturing Summit brings together role models, mentors, recruiters and board-level leaders from across the UK manufacturing landscape - we unpack their stories, share their journeys and focus on the path forward. The interactive conference format sits delegates alongside speakers in a series of small group conversations, creating a relaxed environment for discussion and enabling everyone to lean in and be a part of the industry's most important conversation.

Why attend? | Women in Manufacturing Summit

Rather than sit at the back of a conference room and look at presentation slides all day – delegates get to join a high-level conversation on a focused topic, tapping into the expertise and experience of their discussion leader and fellow delegates.

They can choose which discussion table to join from the available topics and each discussion lasts 30-minutes – enabling them to participate in five different discussions during the course of the conference.

It is a format that our delegates love – click the video below to see it in action!

“The energy in the room was fantastic!” – Alec Anderson, Koolmill Systems

“The involvement of delegates has worked very well. The discussion tables have given a chance for everyone to be more involved, as opposed to a conventional conference where one person is lecturing and a lot of people are just listening.” - Hassan Khalid, Data Scientist, GSK

“I found the format excellent!” – Marco Del Seta, BOC

“Excellent opportunity to discuss key issues with peers in the industry.”- Andrew Carr, BAE Systems
