HELP DESIGN A FORUM SESSION
Hundreds are already signed up to participate in the Emerging Issues Forum, @Manufacturing Works, in February 2013. We will have many thoughtful speakers on the agenda to help us shape the future of manufacturing in our state, but it is equally important for the Forum to feature your best ideas.
Please take a moment to help us thoughtfully explore ways this state can connect its young people to emerging opportunities in manufacturing. For months we have listened to manufacturers despair at not being able to attract qualified, young workers. At the same time, members of Generation Z continue to share their stress over not being able to find good jobs. Have you seen a promising practice for connecting young people to manufacturing in your community? We want to hear your best ideas for making K-12 students aware of manufacturing career opportunities, and we’ll feature the top three during the Emerging Issues Forum. Send us your ideas here.
