STEM Community Lunchtime Conversations – Advanced Manufacturing
October 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Please join us Thursday, Oct. 29 at noon for the next installment of STEM Community Lunchtime Conversations. This subject for this session is Advanced Manufacturing.
Disparaging myths have circulated about American manufacturing for decades. Parents have misconceptions of manufacturing jobs and have discouraged their children from pursuing careers in manufacturing because they think factories are dirty and dangerous, or lacking a solid wage and career opportunities.
The reality is that manufacturing is an advanced, high-value industry that represents innovation and technology. Working in manufacturing offers today’s workforce great compensation and benefits, a robust market of available jobs, challenging and cutting-edge work, and safe working conditions.
Our presenters leading this discussion are experts in the advanced manufacturing industry and will debunk misconceptions about manufacturing and cover the career pathways to advanced manufacturing jobs.
