About the Event
This inaugural event has been created to support the recruitment, engagement and professional development of women in the global steel industry. Over two days, the event will feature three panel discussions, two keynote speakers, and leadership skills training to enhance attendee personal and professional growth. We are expecting an audience of more than 200 steel professionals, from operators to human resource personnel, representing individuals at various stages of their careers, to participate in this event. ALL are encouraged to attend this unique and inclusive seminar.
Who Should Attend
Both men and women who recognize that an equitable workplace is a successful workplace; who want to work together to bridge the gender gap; who believe that a career in steel is rewarding; who recognize that unconscious bias has an effect on the workforce; and who understand the importance of female leadership and allyship in the workplace.
