3DEO honors the contributions of women in the 3D printing industry in celebration of International Women’s Day and Women’s Month.
To maintain its rapid growth, 3DEO says it is committed to building a qualified and diverse team from all backgrounds; in fact, 23% of 3DEO’s team is comprised of women, with roles ranging from manufacturing to marketing. This may put 3DEO ahead of the 3D printing industry, which averages 13% female in both technical and non-technical roles, according to the Women In 3D Printing (Wi3DP) Diversity for Additive Manufacturing #Q2 2018 Report.
“At 3DEO, we believe in diversity and equal opportunity,” says Matt Sand, 3DEO’s president and co-founder. “Our female workforce has been an integral part of our success to date. Recognizing the valuable contributions of the women on our team, we consciously work to foster a culture of inclusion. This team diversity is central to our core values and meaningfully contributes to our competitive advantage.”
In honor of the women who have helped advance 3D printing, following are some highlights of their achievements, according to 3DEO:
- Lisa Crump co-Founded Stratasys with her husband Scott Crump in 1989;
- Marina Hatsopoulos founded Z-Corporation in 1994 and served as the first CEO;
- Adina Schorr led a period of growth as CEO of Objet Ltd. (now part of Stratasys) where she serves on the board of directors; and
- Nora Toure founded Women in 3D Printing in 2014 to foster diversity in the industry.
To celebrate Women’s Month and support this important constituency, 3DEO is sponsoring Wi3DP’s Los Angeles event in March. 3DEO’s marketing advisor, Cathy Lewis, former EVP and CMO of 3D Systems, will be hosting the event.
