Trasa Coffil, business process analyst with STIHL Inc., will be honored with a STEP Ahead Award by the Manufacturing Institute, the workforce-development and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers.
The STEP Ahead Awards honor women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers. The awards represent all levels of the manufacturing industry – from the factory floor to the C-suite.
“I am honored to be recognized by the Manufacturing Institute for this award,” says Coffil. “I am driven by the principles of excellence and Stihl empowers me to make an impact on the manufacturing industry through both my work in the office and mentoring opportunities with young people. It’s a win-win.”
The Manufacturing Institute will recognize 130 recipients of the STEP Ahead Awards at a gala in Washington, D.C. on November 4. The STEP Ahead Awards program will highlight each honoree’s story, including her leadership and accomplishments in manufacturing. View all 2021 STEP Ahead honorees here.
