We often hear that "additive manufacturing is the future" – but, on a workforce level, what does that future actually look like? There are huge questions about the future of additive manufacturing, and it's time to address some of the most important: How and why might the future of 3D printing look different from what we see today? Are we putting the right infrastructure in place in companies to support employees? As the industry grows in terms of technology, how do we create sustainable workplaces that prevent burnout? How do we make space for more female and BIPOC leaders? How does this focus on people inform the technological future of the industry? What is the realizable impact of this targeted future in terms of innovation and measurable success? What tactical results can we expect from building this infrastructure? Where could we have been already had the industry implemented intentional strategies years ago when 3D printing adoption began to hit high growth? Join this discussion from Women in 3D Printing to explore varying career paths and the ways recognizable industry leaders came to find their ways in 3D printing.
