As the pandemic entered the U.S. in March, silent strengths as well as visible supply chain constraints in the industrial sector were brought into the mainstream media. As the national discourse shifted to societal issues, it became obvious that there were growing gaps in diversity in the manufacturing market as well.
In this episode of HotTakes, Sarah Kalhorn, Vice President of Hotwire’s Industrial Technology practice, continues her conversation about how the pandemic, and the BLM movement, is transforming the industrial sector. She talks with Steven Freedman, global head of the Hoistway Information Systems business for CEDES AG, and Keith Larson, VP of Content at Putnam Media.
