While Nikki was at the 2023 Manufacturing in America conference in Detroit, she got to catch up with the U.S. Program Manager of Siemens Cooperates with Education, Amanda Beaton.

Amanda and Nikki chat about how she got into the world of industrial automation,  how the Siemens Cooperates with Education program reaches rural and low-income youth, helping students find careers in automation and mechatronics, and a little bit about what is going on at MiA! 

Thank you to all our supporters, especially our main sponsors Clarify and FactoryFix

Co-Hosts are Alicia Gilpin Director of Engineering at Process and Controls Engineering LLC, and Nikki Gonzales Head of Partnerships at Quotebeam
