Women in Manufacuturing has released new surevy with several promising findings for the future of women in the manufacturing sector. The survey reviewed more than 870 women who are currently working in the manufacturing industry and young women who are just beginning to consider their career options.

The survey also found that 74 percent of women working in manufacturing say that the sector offers multiple career paths for women and that more than half of women in manufacturing today think that the sector is a leading industry for job growth for women. In addition, 64 percent of women working in manufacturing reported that they would recommend a career in manufacturing to a young woman.

However, despite these high numbers, many young women remain unaware of the opportunities available to them in the manufacturing sector. Less than half of young women believe that manufacturing offers the interesting and challenging work they’re seeking and less than 10 percent of young women placed manufacturing among the top five career fields that they think will offer the most opportunity for young women.
