Today, Rosemary Coates speaks with Cindy Oehmigen, the Director of Energy and Corporate Services at the Manufacturers Association of Central New York, which is also known as MACNY. Cindy has worked with numerous manufacturing companies during her 30-year career, guiding them through change, creating team environments, reducing costs, and developing staff potential. In this episode, she emphasizes the importance of building a strong network and the benefits that the MACNY apprenticeship program offers aspiring manufacturers. We discuss how MACNY has assisted manufacturers through the unpredictability of COVID-19 and both disseminates and gathers important information about community health and vaccinations, and Cindy shares her perspective on the essential place that women occupy in manufacturing. She also leaves us with some pertinent advice for young women in the industry: don’t be afraid to ask for what you want and think laterally to get ahead! For all this and so much more, make sure to tune in today.
