Shaw’s Fleurette Fitch Receives Women Make Award

Shaw Industries’ senior quality director of soft surfaces, Fleurette Fitch, has been named a 2024 Women Make Awards honouree by the Manufacturing Institute.

“(It) is a humbling acknowledgment of the journey I’ve enjoyed in manufacturing, (and) a testament to the support and opportunities Shaw has provided me throughout my career,” says Fitch. “I’m deeply committed to paying it forward by mentoring other women in this industry and nurturing the talents of the next generation to create a more inclusive and innovative future for all.”

Fitch is a 25-year veteran of the manufacturing industry, with experience in nearly every level of operations from the factory floor to plant manager and beyond. Her efforts have ensured the highest quality products for customers and improved associate safety and experience, says Shaw.

In addition to her professional achievements, Fitch embodies Shaw’s vision of creating a better future for people, customers and communities through dedicated service to her church, her alma mater and mentorship of women in manufacturing, the company adds.

“Fleurette has made an indelible impact on our organization, associates and community,” says Amanda Edwards, vice-president of enterprise excellence for Shaw. “Her commitment to excellence is evident in all she does, including her efforts to inspire and uplift other women. I am privileged to work alongside her and delighted to see her honoured in this way.”

The Women Make Awards, formerly known as the Step Ahead Awards, recognize exceptional women in manufacturing and motivate them to mentor the next generation through an annual awards gala and associated leadership training program.

The Manufacturing Institute, the workforce development and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, will recognize recipients in Washington, D.C., on April 18.
