The Manufacturers Workforce Summit Series is the state’s only workforce-building event focused solely on manufacturing. Due to the ongoing restrictions on in-person gatherings, event organizers have decided to take the Summit online in an inventive new format. Rather than a single day of workshops and networking, the second annual Summit will feature a series of six online presentations and panel discussions, to be held over the course of ten months beginning on Thursday, October 15.
Each session will be designed to give senior executives in the manufacturing industry the opportunity to learn from thought-leaders and resource providers who can offer solutions to some of the sector’s unique and pressing workforce challenges. Topics will include best practices from around the state, with presentations and panel discussions featuring manufacturers who have had success with recruiting and retaining a dedicated workforce in this highly competitive market. Serving as the program’s emcee will be Ron Angelo, President and CEO of the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT) and former Deputy Commissioner of the state’s Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD).
The Summit Series has begun. The first event on October 15th was a success. Leesa Schipani moderated a discussion on the Second Chance Program with Peter Brunault and Angel Torres from Whitcraft and Warden Garcia from the Department of Corrections. Note: It’s not too late to sign up.
