The Cookware Manufacturers Association has the privilege of having incredible people as our members. 

In this What’s Cooking with the Cookware Manufacturing Association episode, we are kicking off our Women in Housewares series in celebration of women’s history month.

Host Fran Groesbeck has a conversation with Senior Principal Engineer of Amway, Sue Hoff, and the Transitioning Managing Director of the CMA, Penny Rosema to discuss their journey in the cookware industry.

They share insights on how they moved up the ranks in the housewares industry and give advice on what they had learned as they achieved their milestones.

Do you know the story of Rosalind Franklin? In 1962, three men received the Nobel Prize for their work on DNA. Not so surprisingly, a fourth member of the team went unacknowledged: the woman whose data and photographs led to their discovery. Essentially erased from scientific history, Rosalind Franklin was a focused and bright young scientist who was determined to make her presence known.

What about Brownie Wise?  The original girl boss, Brownie Wise capitalized on postwar optimism to build an empire that has made its way into every home in America. Though she did not invent Tupperware, she elevated it from random accessory to a suburban must-have by hosting parties that demonstrated its use. As sales soared, she became the first woman to appear on the cover of Business Week.

These stories are examples of the power of women in industry.  In honor of women’s history month, and to kick off this new series, listen in as we shine the light on two incredible women in our industry and our association, Sue Hoff of Amway and Penny Rosema of the CMA.
