Research reveals that more gender-diverse companies outperform those with fewer or no women working on their senior management teams. Women continue to be under-represented at most levels within the manufacturing sector. As we look to the future – towards the innovators, the makers and the doers who will carry the flag for ‘Make it Britain’ – it’s clear that the women with the required skills and talent are not coming through our sector quickly enough.
A better gender balance makes better business sense. At EEF we want to encourage more women to take advantage of career opportunities at all levels in manufacturing.
