Changing the perception of manufacturing and addressing the skills gap is going to take leadership from manufacturers themselves. The Institute is now providing a means to recognize that leadership and demonstrate the many actions that manufacturers are taking -- The Manufacturer's Pledge.
The Manufacturer's Pledge represents a commitment by manufacturers to take action. These actions can focus or invest in education and training, promote a positive image of manufacturing, support policies that improve manufacturing, rally other business leaders -- anything that supports manufacturing.
Companies that take the Pledge can expect the Institute to promote their activities through our website and social media, connect them to other partnerships and activities happening in their region to leverage their commitment, and provide them with any available tools to support their actions.
Take the Manufacturer's Pledge and join the growing list of companies committed to changing the perception of manufacturing and attracting the next generation to jobs in the industry.
