WASHINGTON, -  Today, The Manufacturing Institute and Deloitte launched a new survey for teachers, students, parents/influencers, and employers to share their perspective on Manufacturing Day (MFG DAY) and how it has changed their perception of U.S. manufacturing careers. The survey was distributed to roughly 2,000 manufacturing hosts across the United States to gather national data from over 500,000 teachers, students and parents on how MFG DAY events truly make a difference in local communities.

MFG DAY addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show, in a coordinated effort, what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. By working together during and after MFG DAY, manufacturers begin to address the skilled labor shortage they face, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing, and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry.

Supported by a group of industry sponsors and co-producers, MFG DAY is designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. The rallying point for a growing mass movement, MFG DAY empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.
