WOTM is an organization that welcomes everyone!

We believe it's extremely important to get young men and women involved in manufacturing and other STEM related fields, which is why we try and make our fundraisers and events a whole lot of fun. We want our members, donors, and students to leave every event feeling excited about where manufacturing is heading with our future generation of professionals in manufacturing.
