Raise the Floor, Women in Manufacturing

Gateway Dean of Workforce Solutions, Carissa Schutzman, Executive Director of The Women's Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Vanessa Freytag, and Laura Lyons, president of ATech Training, and chair of Gateway’s “Raise the Floor” discuss the initiative.
