Women in Steel

The Association for Iron & Steel Technology’s (AIST) mission is to advance the technical development, production, processing and application of iron and steel. While most of our work is focused on this mission, promoting a diversified industry workforce is vital to retain and grow our membership.

We are cognizant of the need to remove barriers to entry for many prospective AIST members, which can transcend the Association and have a positive impact on the industry as a whole.

Presently, AIST is assessing barriers to entry for women in steel, and identifying key success stories in Iron & Steel Technology in a column called Progress & Perspectives — Women in Steel.
