NEXT GENERATION ROSIE
You are all ground-breakers and role models just like Rosie the Riveter. You are the new generation of female manufacturers. You design planes, computers, and furniture, figure out how to lay out an assembly line, help to make new cars faster and refrigerators more efficient, push the limits of computer chips, and invent new medicines. You figure out how to make businesses greener, more productive and more efficient. Gone are the days of the dark and dirty shop floor.
Be proud of your achievements, share your accomplishments, and show everyone your modern-day Rosie pose.
Pose like Rosie and send us your selfies. If we can see you, we can be you. Let’s go viral to encourage women to pursue careers in manufacturing. Show the world what you do. Use the hashtag #WeCanDoIt #NextGenRosie tag us @cme_mec and share on social media.
