Nine Jabil Women Nominated for STEP Ahead Award

Posted January 31, 2017

Nine Jabil women were nominated for the fifth annual STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead award by the Manufacturing Institute. The STEP Ahead Award is a national recognition and distinction, celebrating Honorees and Emerging Leaders, building their leadership skills and strengthening their networks. This program identifies influential females, at all levels of the industry that have demonstrated excellence and leadership throughout their careers in manufacturing. 

“While only two women from any one company can be honored per year, I am delighted that we had such a great response from our leadership team to nominate so many deserving female leaders at Jabil,” said Jabil CEO Mark Mondello. The honorees will be publicly announced on March 1st. This is Jabil’s 3rd year participating in the STEP Ahead recognition program. Jabil’s nominees represent all levels of our manufacturing industry from the factory floor to senior management. 

On April 20, the Institute will honor 100 women and 30 Emerging Leaders (women under the age of 30) at a Gala in Washington, DC. Jabil will recognize all its nominees for the impact they have had mentoring and supporting the next generation of female talent in manufacturing careers by hosting them at the event.
