On Tuesday, August 30th, Dordan joined four other women-owned or operated manufacturing companies at a round table discussion with Congress Representative, Lauren Underwood, and USTR Ambassador, Katherine Tai.
The meet was scheduled to discuss the impact of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on small and medium-sized manufacturing companies in Illinois's 14th District. Issues like labor, trade policy, sustainability, and increasing access for women in manufacturing were addressed, with commentary from Rep. Underwood and Ambassador Thai.
