In the United States, the demand for educated, skilled workers is quickly outpacing the supply. The situation is especially dire in the manufacturing industry, which is expected to face a shortage of 2 million employees over the next 10 years. This has drastic implications for the economy and society.
To help reverse this trend, the Interchange Group is donating funds this holiday season to The Manufacturing Institute, a non-profit dedicated to building a skilled and diverse pipeline of manufacturing talent. The organization’s focus on valuing women in manufacturing, attracting the next generation of youth into manufacturing, and transitioning veterans into rewarding careers in manufacturing is directly aligned with my own passion and efforts.
I encourage you to choose a cause to support this holiday season that is meaningful to you.
