Women in Manufacturing

The second EEF Women in Manufacturing report, sponsored by Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, celebrates leading woman in manufacturing SMEs and, like our first study, identifies the successes women can have in modern manufacturing workplaces.

We update the previous findings on women on the boards of FTSE 100 manufacturing companies and with our focus on the bigger picture for manufacturing, we also shine a light on the careers of successful high-level women in SMEs, which account for nearly 60% of manufacturing employment.

The report shows:

  • how many women are at board level in the largest manufacturing companies
  • how vital women are to the sector.

It celebrates the successes that women can have in manufacturing, identifies the challenges and highlights the changes needed to be made see more women choosing careers in our sector.
