Washington, DC, 11/28/12 - The Manufacturing Institute, in partnership with Deloitte and with the support of Alcoa Foundation hosted the Talent-Driven Innovation: A Global Dialogue on Best Practices for Growth, at the Knight Conference Center at the Newseum, Washington, D.C.
This highly interactive event convened over 100 attendees and over 150 virtual participants. The Global Dialogue was created to capture the broadest composite of Public-Private Partnerships from across the globe and around the corner. Throughout the event, there were several recurring themes around the overarching topic of developing a better skilled manufacturing workforce for Talent Driven Innovation. Other panels focused on the lack of skilled workers and its impact on manufacturing, the impact of having vacant manufacturing jobs, and how corporations are solving the problem. International topics included how business coordinate public-private partnerships and the impact of public policy, talent and innovation.
Attendees included industry experts, public and private stakeholders such as large and small manufacturers, educators, association groups, policymakers, and researchers. Representatives from the United States included the White House, U.S. Department of Labor, Manufacturers from Ohio, California, Kentucky, Illinois, Nevada, Connecticut, and international representatives attended from Germany, India, Australia.
The Proceedings from the Global Dialogue will inform the report, Manufacturing for Growth, an output coordinated by Deloitte LLP for the World Economic Forum 2012-2013. The Global Dialogue will contribute to solutions and strategies that will grow a robust manufacturing industry and workforce for the future.
