Manufacturing Jobs Dominated by Men as Leadership Gender Gap Continues

Manufacturing Jobs Dominated by Men as Leadership Gender Gap Continues

Across the manufacturing technology sector there is a major disparity between jobs held by men and women. Louise Dickmeyer, President of PDP Solutions shared specific ideas about what can be done to encourage and place more women in manufacturing technology jobs. Twenty percent of chief information officer jobs (CIOs) at Fortune 250 companies were held by women in 2014.  In 2012, although 57 percent of undergraduate degree recipients were female, women only accounted for the 14 percent of the computer science degrees at major research universities. This number has actually declined in recent years. It is particularly surprising that women are not capturing more manufacturing leadership roles, given the admission of communication failure on the part of male manufacturing executives.
