For over four decades, Cindy Freeby, Regional Sales Manager at Ametek Specialty Metal Products, Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA, has led a successful career in the Powder Metallurgy sector. Earlier in the year, Freeby’s work was recognised when she became the first woman to receive the APMI’s prestigious Fellow Award.

Ametek Specialty Metal Products, with this new Fellow among its ranks, has published an interview with Freeby as the latest in its interview series ‘Raising the Profile of Women in Engineering’, to discuss her extensive career and the place of women in STEM and how to attract this large segment of the population to Powder Metallurgy.

“I received my degree in chemistry a while back, but I think that many women, at that time, felt frightened to enter what was widely considered a ‘man’s world’,” Freeby said.

“To an extent, these perceptions still remain,” she noted. “I think it is important for young women to be exposed to the vast opportunities in the world of science and engineering, so they can see the prominent careers which are offered in Powder Metallurgy and other technical industries.”

The full interview is available to read here.
