Shaw Director Recognized with Women MAKE Award
Shaw Industries’ Ingrid Redmon has been named a 2023 Women MAKE Awards honouree.
Presented annually by the Manufacturing Institute, the workforce development and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, the awards program recognizes women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers and represent all levels of the manufacturing industry, from the factory floor to the C-suite.
“The Manufacturing Institute is advocating for women and creating a better future for our industry — I am honoured and humbled to be recognized,” says Redmon, director of project management at Shaw. “I am passionate about mentoring and preparing the next generation of diverse leaders in manufacturing because unique perspectives are often the ones that make others think differently and help drive impactful change.”
Redmon began her career with Shaw over two decades ago. Since then, she has worked in a variety of roles in manufacturing, marketing, sales and information technology.
According to the company, Redmon has been a true change-maker with a passion for results and has catalyzed innovation for Shaw and its customers. She has also been an avid champion for diversity and inclusion. Redmon was a founding member of Conexión, Shaw’s Hispanic and Latino associate resource group, and helped build a corporate mentoring program that helps develop talented women at Shaw.
“Ingrid’s versatility is a testament to her ability to adapt to changing circumstances and contribute in diverse capacities,” says Torrance Ford, vice-president of talent management at Shaw. “She exemplifies the robust career path that manufacturing offers and with every role she has served in, she has left a lasting mark on our organization.”
