Two Jabil Women Honored by the Manufacturing Institute

The Jabil Joules community is pleased to congratulate Beth Walters, Senior Vice President of Communications and Investor Relations, and Meredith Kovarik, Director of Supply Chain, on being selected by the Manufacturing Institute as Honorees of the Women in Manufacturing STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Award.

According to the Manufacturing Institute’s website, the “STEP Ahead Awards honor ladies who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers and represent all levels of the manufacturing industry, from the factory-floor to the C suite. The STEP Awards are part of the larger STEP Ahead initiative, launched to examine and promote the role of women in the manufacturing industry through recognition, research and leadership for attracting, advancing and retaining strong female talent.”

Beth, the first woman at Jabil to achieve a vice president role, has led countless global internal and external communications programs and initiatives that have shaped Jabil’s culture throughout the world. As you may or may not know, readers of the Jabil Joules blog, Beth is the catalyst behind the Jabil Joules initiative, to support a gender-imbalanced future at Jabil and in our communities.

Meredith, one of the youngest directors in Jabil’s history, differentiated herself by being the key designer and early-adopter of a process called Demand Driven Supply Chain at Jabil that was truly revolutionary within the electronic manufacturing and services industry. Committed to achieving success for her team, her customers and the company, she serves as a true role model and mentor to her Jabil colleagues.

We are so proud of both of these ladies and hope you take the time to join us in congratulating them on their success.

    It is widely known throughout the company how Meredith became the youngest female director. It wasn’t her engineering background that got her there!
