Join us for the 1st Women in Welding Mini Virtual Conference hosted by the American Welding Society.

We have invited (4) women who have succeeded in this industry to kick-off what we hope will be a series of these virtual events geared towards topics faced by women in this industry.

They will share their own professional history, challenges they confronted and insight on how they advanced their careers into a leadership role or a successful business.

You will also have opportunity to ask questions during the discussion panel.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity during Women’s History Month.
