The Industry 4.0 Workforce: Needs, Issues and Solutions
May 13 3 PM ET
Manufacturers across the United States frequently respond that the lack of a skilled workforce is their number one issue. The increasingly fast pace of automation coupled with a lack of consistency around competencies and career pathways make it harder for education seekers to identify which programs can lead to the best jobs. Employers are challenged to find qualified employees, as today there is limited insight on reliable and recognizable skills and credentials on the part of job applicants. Educators want to ensure they are offering the competencies that manufacturers desire but suffer from limited and consistent knowledge of manufacturer needs.
Join the ARM Institute and SME for this joint webinar where our panel of experts will share insight on programs and activities underway to help U.S. manufacturers compete globally with a skilled and ready workforce. Suzy Teele, ARM Institute Head of Marketing & Communications, will moderate the discussion with Lisa Masciantonio (ARM Institute Chief Workforce Officer), Robin Fernkas (Deputy Administrator of the Office of Workforce Investment, U.S. Department of Labor), and Scott Lucas, Ph.D. (Vice President of Aviation, Manufacturing, and Institutional Effectiveness, Wichita State University Campus of Applied Sciences and Technology (WSU Tech)).
