Women Breaking The Mold 2022: Inspiration. Enlightenment. Humility.

Inspiration. Enlightenment. Humility.

I was asked to write a reflection piece after my attendance at the 2022 Plastics News & Rubber News Women Breaking the Mold Conference on November 14-15. Three words summarize my feelings about the event: inspiration, enlightenment, and humility.

Accede Mold & Tool hosted their 4th annual Manufacturing Day on October 6 and 7, 2022. Continuing with past successes, we showcased our state-of-the-art moldmaking to students and educators. Our “Walk the Process” of plastic injection moldmaking included visits throughout each ACCEDE department with hands-on activities. Students and educators gained insight and knowledge while presenters shared their pride and excitement for their careers in the moldmaking industry. Brett Lindenmuth, VP of Operations and MFG Day Tour Guide & presenter, says, “This day provides exposure for the students to manufacturing, specifically moldmaking, where it can be limited throughout their school years. We look forward to showing them the opportunities they may not be aware of.” Since our first event, ACCEDE has introduced nearly 200 students and educators to the moldmaking industry. (more…)
