Women in Manufacturing

Date:  October 2023

We were thrilled to have Amrita Bhogal, People and Culture Leader, join other inspiring and knowledgeable panelists at the 3rd Annual BC Women in Manufacturing (WIM) Success Forum in partnership with the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters Association (CME). Amrita shared her profound expertise in organizational culture and offered valuable guidance to aspiring women seeking a career in the manufacturing industry.

From Error to Excellence was the theme of the forum and encouraged attendees to embrace and learn from their mistakes, recognizing that taking risks and making mistakes can be the stepping stones to success and a path of excellence. The goal is to discover the transformative power of embracing and learning from our mistakes.

The forum also highlighted the efforts of the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters Association (CME), which has increased the number of women in manufacturing by 100,000 in just five years. CME’s focus on community-building and fostering inclusive groups has helped to connect women in the industry and provide valuable support.

Participants were also introduced to Machines Italia Canada, a project of the Italian Trade Commission that promotes Italian companies and connects them with Canadian partners.

Overall, the day was a great success, providing a platform for women to share, learn, and empower each other in the manufacturing industry.
