Rung for Women + MADE Event 5/25

Are you curious about how things get made? Do you like DIY projects, creating or constructing things,? Are you considering a career change, but don’t want a desk job behind a computer?

Gone are the days of assembly lines and dirty workshops; today’s manufacturing is a creative process that uses high-tech, advanced machinery. It’s also an industry in high demand for talent willing to pay you what you’re worth.

That’s why Rung is helping women discover the possibilities in Advanced Manufacturing starting with our Fall 2023 Cohort, and we are teaming up with MADE Makerspace to do it!

Join us on Thursday, May 25 from 6:00- 8:00 pm at MADE for a peek into how the Movers and Makers in manufacturing take raw material and turn it into something meaningful. MADE can help you access the equipment, creativity, and a community of other makers eager to tell you all about it.

Appetizers and refreshments will be provided, so come mix, mingle, and make your own crafts as you explore modern machines and how they’re used to create the products you consume daily. Activities will include demos of a CNC Router and Powder-Coating, as well as opportunities to make your own metal design using a plasma cutter, and/ or a one-of-a-kind Rung keychain using a laser-cutting machine.

At this event, you can also learn more about Rung for Women’s 2023 Fall Cohort and how Rung can help you find a new, rewarding career in less than a year. For more information about Rung and our eligibility criteria, visit

This event is free and open to anyone who is interested in learning about advanced manufacturing or becoming a Rung member. Please register in advance and check in upon arrival.

Please note: it is recommended to wear close-toed shoes for plasma cutting. We can’t wait to see you there!
