"In fast moving industries, such as 3D printing, there is under-appreciated value in being unique. There’s so much opportunity for those that can truly harness this to drive innovation and excel professionally."

"I love how Wi3DP works to motivate women to get involved in 3D printing. I get nervous speaking in front of crowds, but I never say no when asked to put myself out there to talk about 3D Printing, even if I'll be one of the only women on that stage. There is such a lack of diversity in technology - I am always inspired by the stories I read through Wi3DP. I want to take advantage of every opportunity to showcase my knowledge and show other women that they, too, can make a difference in additive manufacturing."

"Women in 3D Printing is an amazing platform of 3D Printing as a technology with special focus on women in this field. 3D Printing would soon be a $2Billion industry and the representation of women in this forum is less than it should be. It is the need of the hour to increase visibility of women working in 3D Printing and hence inspire more women to join hands and be representative of the various fields here. Women in 3D Printing is doing a great job!!"

Jennifer ShinWi3DP Paris ambassador
"Budding from a shared interest in 3D printing, the WI3DP community has grown into a safe space to share experiences, exchange tips, and be inspired in what is a predominately male industry. From industry experts to students studying this new tech and its even newer applications, to those just discovering 3D printing as a new found interest, WI3DP and its meetups provide a supportive and much-needed community for women around the world."
Marney StapleyVice President North Forge Technology Exchange, VP Business Fabbaloo, Winnipeg Wi3DP ambassador
"I typically am not one to single out women and I always seems to have been part of male-dominated industries and activities. Even in High School and University, I ran with the boys because they were the ones that I could keep up with. Today, I do see the benefits of our community having a diverse representation of ethnicity, backgrounds, and gender. Diversity is a key to market growth and driving innovation - especially during ideation sessions and solving complex problems. Diversity is key."
Tracy HazzardInc. Innovation Columnist and Host of WTFFF?! 3D Printing Podcast
"As a woman in tech innovation, it can be very isolating without a shared experience. Women in 3D Printing has brought together amazing women from all backgrounds and experience levels, centering on one interest and passion – additive technology. It has helped me find new sources of inspiration and build a stronger diverse network. Wi3D is poised to become a catalyst for the industry. I highly recommend joining the group and taking advantage of all the information and events."
Sarah O'SellWi3DP Seattle ambassador
"Women In 3D Printing is a diverse, welcoming, and highly supportive community of ladies seeking to explore possibilities and showcase the potential of a game-changing technology. With members of the art, fashion, architecture, design, food, robotics, manufacturing, and engineering fields, gatherings are a treat. I always look forward to reading the members showcase and have made a few new friends since joining!"
