The STEP Ahead Awards is a national manufacturing event dedicated to honoring women who demonstrated excellence and leadership in science, technology, engineering and production (STEP).

The award was created by the Manufacturing Institute in 2012.

The goal of the Manufacturing Institute is to keep promoting the manufacturing industry and consequently attract, train and retain skilled workers in the trade.

In line with its core mission, the Institute launched the STEP Ahead Award to keep inspiring women to start their careers in manufacturing and support those already in it.

Women currently represent a third of the workforce in the manufacturing industry and the hope for the Institute is see this number grow in the future.
