Sarah E. Nash honored with 2024 Women MAKE Award

We’re delighted to announce that our CEO and owner, Sarah E. Nash, accepted the 2024 Women MAKE Award last night in Washington, DC. This national honor recognizes women in the manufacturing industry who exemplify leadership within their companies.

The Manufacturing Institute, the workforce development and education affiliate of the National Association of Manufacturers, honored women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers across all levels of the manufacturing industry. “Today we celebrate them, their stories, and the amazing careers that these women have built in modern manufacturing,” said Caterpillar Group President of Resource Industries and Women MAKE Awards Chair Denise Johnson.

Each year, 100 Honorees and 30 Emerging Leaders are peer-selected based on their contributions to their companies, communities, and developing the next generation of talent. Women MAKE America Award Honorees have accomplished success within their companies and have proven to be leaders in the industry as a whole.

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.

“I’m honored to be named a 2024 MAKE award Honoree by the Manufacturing Institute,” said Sarah E. Nash. “As the owner of an innovative silicone manufacturer based in Cleveland, it’s rewarding to be recognized for my leadership skills and community involvement. I’m proud of assembling a very diverse workforce (78%) who is engineering high performance materials for our customers in growth markets such as wearables, energy, and space.”

“The women recognized this year are phenomenal leaders, co-workers, mothers, sisters and daughters and vital members of their communities,” said MI President and Executive Director Carolyn Lee. “Each year we see the highest caliber of women nominated, which is a testament to the growing number of trailblazers and powerhouses in the industry.”
