Women as manufacturing leaders: disruptors or adapters?

Date: 13th February 2020

As a male-dominated industry, manufacturing battles to attract and retain women in leadership positions. If manufacturers want to tap the greatest pool of talent they need to understand the reasons for this. Research has shown that women in leadership positions can provide greater diversity of perspectives, innovation and a more balanced approach to management. However, women leaders still experience significant challenges and contradictions in influencing their male-dominated organisations. Simply increasing the number of women leaders in organisations is no guarantee for the empowerment of other women or the transformation of organisations.
