Greene Tweed announced that Amy AlSahsah, Synthetics Value Stream Manager at Greene Tweed, has been recognized as a 2023 Women MAKE Awards honoree. The Manufacturing Institute—the workforce development and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers—presents this annual national awards program to women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers and represent all levels of the manufacturing industry, from the factory floor to the C-suite.
AlSahsah’s engineering work at Greene Tweed includes the production management of high performance elastomeric materials for the aerospace, transportation, semiconductor and fluid handling industries. She is also responsible for value stream management including compounding, preform, molding and finishing to inspection of products as well as managing 90-plus professional and union skilled team members.
The Women MAKE Awards are part of the MI’s Women MAKE America initiative, which is the nation’s marquee program to close the gender gap in manufacturing. Women account for about half of the U.S. labor force but represent less than one-third of the manufacturing workforce. Women MAKE America aims to create a 21st-century manufacturing workforce by empowering and inspiring women in the industry.
“There is no doubt that the 2023 Women MAKE Awards Honorees and Emerging Leaders are immensely talented and accomplished,” said Cornerstone Building Brands President and CEO and 2023 Women MAKE Awards Chair Rose Lee. “They serve as excellent role models committed to inspiring and supporting women and girls of all ages. Their example is how we will create an industry that is as diverse as the communities we serve.”
The Women MAKE Awards honor exceptional women in manufacturing and motivate them to mentor the next generation through an annual awards gala and associated leadership training program. The stories of these women and the leadership they exemplify will help inspire the next generation of women leaders in manufacturing and support talent already within the industry.
On April 20, the MI will recognize 130 recipients of the Women MAKE Awards in Washington, D.C. The evening will highlight each Honoree and Emerging Leader’s story, including their leadership and accomplishments in manufacturing.
