By Catherine Nielsen
As the skills gap becomes a growing concern, Catherine Nielsen, control engineering technician, will shine a light on one unique solution: closing the gender gap in an effort to address the skills gap. During this webinar, the discussion will feature insight about why women are underrepresented in maintenance and reliability
From the first-hand perspective of a woman in the field, Nielsen will combine her personal experience as a manufacturing technician and updated, empirical research to explore causes and solutions for the gap in gender diversity. By encouraging the presence of women in maintenance and reliability, the field can expand its pool of future practitioners, simultaneously closing the gender gap and the skills gap.
