Melody Birmingham-Byrd was 22 when she vaulted into management, taking a job as a front-line supervisor at a General Motors plant in Rochester, N.Y. She oversaw members of the United Automobile Workers whose backgrounds were about as different from hers as they could possibly be – most were male, white, older and experienced. But Birmingham-Byrd was determined to do right by her team, to provide the type of supportive, positive leadership she felt her parents never got in their assembly line jobs.

Despite her young age, she excelled.

Rick Freeman left work thinking about a conversation he had with his co-worker Brandon Garrison about how to improve a safety process at Allen Steam Station. The next day, he came back to work with an idea that could save lives in factories and power plants nationwide.

He and Garrison came up with the idea for a slidelink cover, a device the size of a business card that could help prevent electrocutions during the lockout-tagout safety procedure.
