Women in Electronics Founder Jackie Mattox to Keynote Women in Electronics Reception at IPC APEX EXPO 2022


Reading time ( words)

Does a disruptive climate help or hinder women in the workplace? Has diversity improved in electronics? What's the electronics manufacturing industry doing and what else can be done? These are just a few of the topics Jackie Mattox, founder, president and CEO of Women in Electronics (a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional and personal development of women in the electronics industry), will address during the Women in Electronics Reception at IPC APEX EXPO on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Dedicated to personal and professional leadership development, with a focus on women’s issues, Mattox will also cover the economic impact of gender parity, hidden bias in the workplace, and managing a global supply chain during unprecedented times.

“What can our industry do to encourage diversity in our industry? If you can speak it, you can change it,” Mattox has said. The brainchild of Mattox, Women in Electronics was formed in 2017 to provide opportunities and solutions to the unique career development needs for women in our industry.

The Women in Electronics Reception at IPC APEX EXPO invites women in the electronics industry to join with colleagues across the supply chain to network, share ideas, discuss career experiences and engage with a woman who has made a name for herself in the electronics industry.

“We are thrilled to welcome Jackie to IPC APEX EXPO 2022,” said Alicia Balonek, senior director, trade shows and events. “We’re looking forward to hearing her insights on expanding women’s leadership roles within the fast-paced and ever-evolving electronics industry.”

IPC President and CEO John Mitchell recently interviewed Mattox on diversity in the workplace during the APEX EXPO edition of IPC’s podcast “The Art of the Possible."

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads For the Week

It’s Feb. 3, 2023—2/3/23—and now we know the results of yesterday’s Groundhog weather forecast straight from Gobbler’s Knob in Pennsylvania. Punxsutawney Phil says six more weeks of winter. If you’re watching the ongoing ice storms blanketing much of the United States at present, that seems like a safe bet. Also a safe bet is that the most-read news this week is IPC APEX EXPO related. Additionally, this week IPC published its EMS and PCB numbers for December. All told, lots of industry news to read this week.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/27/2023 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
This week, the IPC APEX EXPO event has cast a long shadow across the news feeds. No, that’s not the right metaphor. No, not a shadow; shadows are dark. It would be more accurate to say IPC APEX EXPO cast a beam of illumination upon the news feeds for the electronics manufacturing industry. To that end, the APEX EXPO news makes a prominent appearance in this week’s editor’s picks.
