As part of its “Great Jobs Without a Four-Year Degree” project, Center of the American Experiment – in partnership with the National Association of Manufacturers, Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, Minnesota Precision Manufacturing Association, and RealTime Talent – will host a solutions-focused symposium aimed at better equipping manufacturers with tools and strategies for informing students, parents, and others of excellent job and career opportunities in modern manufacturing.

Keynoter Gardner Carrick, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives for the Manufacturing Institute, will discuss promising tools and strategies from a variety of states. He also will explore innovative programs gaining momentum here in Minnesota. Such activities are especially important since many companies are increasingly turning to internal training programs for attracting, developing, and retaining new talent.

Two expert panels will follow Mr. Carrick’s remarks, including the likes of Sean A. Miller of 3M and David Ahlers of Graco. The first will feature Minnesota manufacturers pursing innovative initiatives to attract talent, with the second featuring companies that are developing their own talent in creative and highly effective ways. After the panels, there will be round-table sessions designed to help manufactures explore tools and strategies to help them accelerate their own attraction and development efforts.
