Women MAKE Awards Honor Brunswick Boat Group President Aine Denari for Excellence in Manufacturing
METTAWA, Illinois – March 2, 2023 – The Manufacturing Institute (MI), the workforce development and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, announced today that Brunswick Boat Group President Aine Denari has been recognized as a 2023 Women MAKE America Awards Honoree. This annual national awards program honors women 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.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the National Association of Manufacturers and remain committed to inspiring the next generation of women in manufacturing,” said Denari. “Brunswick has done an outstanding job of promoting women in the workforce and specifically in manufacturing and it is our job as leaders of the Company to empower and develop women to have a successful career in the marine industry.”
The Women MAKE Awards honor exceptional women in manufacturing and motivate them to mentor the next generation through an annual awards gala and associated leadership training program. The stories of these women and the leadership they exemplify will help inspire the next generation of women leaders in manufacturing and support talent already within the industry.
“I am proud of Aine and all of the outstanding women at Brunswick who are demonstrating leadership in manufacturing,” said Dave Foulkes, Brunswick Corporation CEO. “We continue to support opportunities to promote women and diversity within our global workforce and in the broader marine industry, and I look forward to continued celebration of these wonderful accomplishments.”
Brunswick continues to be recognized for its commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. In 2022, the company was named among the top 35 percent of companies on the Forbes list of Best Employers for Diversity for the third consecutive year and on the list of Forbes Best Employers for Veterans 2022. Earlier this year, Brunswick ranked in the top 10% of Forbes America’s Best Large Employers 2023 – an honor the Company has won for five straight years.
On April 20, the Manufacturing Institute will recognize the recipients of the Women MAKE Awards in Washington, D.C., at a gala highlighting each Honoree and Emerging Leader’s story, including their leadership and accomplishments in manufacturing.
