Local Alumna Leads the Way to Support Women in Manufacturing

Local Alumna Leads the Way to Support Women in Manufacturing

Cyndi Zoldy, Executive Director of the Smaller Manufacturers Association of Connecticut (SMA), has an office in the new Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (AMTC) of Naugatuck Valley Community College. Her position there enables her to mentor aspiring manufacturing students, especially the women for whom her own career in manufacturing inspires mentorship. Zoldy has a daily presence in the AMTC where she frequently meets students. Her experience and outgoing personality support the leadership role she takes to extend mentorship opportunities to students; it can start with a simple invitation to lunch. In her role as executive director, Zoldy is keenly aware of the skills, and relationships that go with a career in manufacturing. She is also deeply involved in the community in many volunteer capacities: she is a board member of the Naugatuck Community College Foundation, and the Mattatuck Museum, she supports community activities of the Smaller Manufacturers Association of Connecticut, contributes to the planning and organization of the Saint Mary's Gala, Chase Collegiate School, Highlander Theater Company, the Sports Booster Club, and the Watertown Soccer Booster Club.
