Rachel Camarillo Recognized by NIST for Her Success & Impact in the Manufacturing Industry

Tuesday, March 19, 2024 |

Rachel Camarillo, dedicated board member and treasurer of Impact Washington, was recognized by NIST for her outstanding contributions to manufacturing. She empowers and supports women in this industry by sharing opportunities and creating an environment where they can reach their full potential. 

A significant factor that drew Camarillo to Impact Washington was our early and unwavering support for women in manufacturing (WiM). What initially attracted her to Impact has become a passionate mission for Camarillo.

“I founded the chapter here in Washington after craving a strong network of female peers who I could learn from and help inspire me to keep going in the industry,” she says. “Little did I know, there was a need far greater than what I had ever imagined and now the WiM Washington chapter is one of the premier chapters of the larger national WiM association, leading the way in terms of gaining sponsorships and executing regular high-quality professional development and networking opportunities for women in manufacturing in our local community.”

In honor of Women's History Month, Impact Washington extends a heartfelt thank you to Rachel Camarillo for her dedicated service and significant influence on WiM!
