Network Created To Connect Women In The Reman Industry

New MERA group embraces diversity and inclusion.

MERA – The Association for Sustainable Manufacturing announced the formation of the Women in Remanufacturing Network. This new group aims to provide a community where women from diverse roles within the remanufacturing sector can come together to connect, inspire, guide and support one another. 

“The Women in Remanufacturing Network includes women from different job roles, spanning all stages of the career path, from small to large organizations,” said Cheryl Dry, senior manager of programs & member services at MERA. “What we all have in common is that we are women who work in a largely male-dominated industry, so having a network to connect and develop relationships is very valuable.”

Launched in August during the week of the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the group meets regularly to share best practices and resources, discuss topics of mutual interest, and hear from special guest presenters. Most recently, Julie Martin, former global vice president of sales at Hella, shared the story of her successful and inventive career, which included pioneering a contemporary job-sharing program and forming a women’s diversity group.

“I am happy and proud to be a part of this impressive network of women,” said Anita Barlow, managing director, AFM reman for BorgWarner and a member of the MERA board of directors. “Beyond being an admirable initiative focused on diversity, equity and inclusion, this group will be a place to learn about challenges, opportunities and potential solutions, while also celebrating the ongoing contribution of women in sustainable manufacturing.”  

Participation in the Women in Remanufacturing Network is a benefit of MERA membership.
