The Manufacturing Institute‘s Close the Skills Gap framework addresses the current and future skills and workforce development gaps through the three pillars: image, quality and policy. Jennifer McNelly, President of Manufacturing Institute, stated the importance of manufacturing in our country very eloquently, ‘Manufacturing is revitalizing our economy and making America strong again. And, when manufacturing investments are strong, a
multiplier effect ripples across the economy, creating jobs and growth in other industries.‘
Over the past six years, through initiatives and research, the Manufacturing Institute created a framework to change the perception of manufacturing careers, re-establish the US as a global leader of manufacturing and increase advocacy efforts for education and job training policies.
