This episode of the DH+ INSPIRE podcast marks another addition in our Women Transforming Manufacturing series. In this installment, we had the pleasure of spending time with Ashley Poe Thompson, Operations Manager of Polymer Drive at BASF in Chattanooga, TN. BASF is a global corporation dedicated to creating chemistry that supports a sustainable future.
In our conversation with Ashley, she describes how she got her start in engineering and the career path that led her to BASF. She also discusses the ways in which her role has changed over the years, and what she finds to be most rewarding about her position with the company. Moving past her career in the field, Ashley talks through the changes they have each witnessed in the industry, especially with the growing number of women and young professionals in STEM. To conclude the podcast, our guest delves into her leadership position within the Tennessee chapter of Women in Manufacturing, encouraging listeners to look into the organization.
