A whole new world of POSSIBILITIES

August 19, 2011 5:28 am

“After lying low for a few years, the industry is back in the market with an aim to reach new heights. It holds a knowledgeable and talented manpower, and with the surge of fancy and exotic tools in the market, people will help in industrial growth in the future. However, the contribution of women in the core industrial field is minimal compared to that of men. The coming decade will see this equation change significantly for the better” – Aafreen Sheikh
It might be passé to say that ‘behind every successful man there is a woman’. In today’s world, like men, women have been making and marking new achievements in every industry. In the near future, one should not be surprised to find women at par with men, be it any field and industry. Unfortunately, the manufacturing industry does not highlight any prominent female achievers. The entire manpower comprises mostly of males and rarely one can see the ratio tilting the other way. The manufacturing industry is growing at a rapid pace in the country and allied fields are also doing well. At such times, this field should be viewed as one with opportunities by males and females alike. However, due to lack of sufficient encouragement or prominent names, the demand to pursue a career in this field is lukewarm.
The need and growth of this industry is based on large orders from the automobile, defence, aerospace and engineering sectors. Thus, opportunities are visible in every sector.
Globally, tooling industry seems to be wide and large scale, with 100 per cent contribution of manpower to bring the industry with determination and focus to another level. However, in this regard men continue to outnumber women. But in the near future, can we predict a change in this statistic significantly?
Shortage of women in manufacturingKnowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is widely regarded as critical to be competitive in the current global economy. Due to the unequal ratio of males and females working in this sector, there is a huge disparity in their earnings too. These ratios lead to a less liking for the field in general. In a 2009 survey, only 5 per cent of the girls said they were interested in an engineering career. It should be noted that attracting and retaining more women in the manufacturing workforce will maximise innovation, creativity and competitiveness.
