Don Wood Foundation Adds Harman to Board of Trustees

Friday, September 23, 2022

The Don Wood Foundation, a private foundation dedicated to the advancement of manufacturing, entrepreneurship, and related education in the region, has added Ashley Harman to their Board of Trustees.

Harman serves as an IT Project Manager for Vera Bradley but began her career at 80/20, Inc., where she worked alongside founder Don Wood. In 2018, when the Don Wood Foundation was started, Harman was contracted for some of the initial marketing, organization, and strategic planning. While serving on the Foundation's board, her primary focus will be connecting women to their potential career paths in advanced manufacturing.

"We're excited to have Ashley join our team as a trustee," said executive director Laura Macknick. "She is passionate about connecting people with career paths that they may not even be aware of. Her history with our founder, Don Wood, and his mission to advance manufacturing and inspire entrepreneurship in our area makes her a valuable asset to our foundation and the community."

The Don Wood Foundation serves to align opportunities between students, community, and industry by growing and strengthening the manufacturing sector in the region. To learn more about the Don Wood Foundation, visit their website at www.DonWoodFoundation.org.
