Each year on MFG Day and throughout the month of October, thousands of companies nationwide join The Manufacturing Institute, the workforce and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, in showing what careers in modern manufacturing really look like firsthand.
By hosting events that include tours of facilities, innovation centers, or locally organized gatherings, companies are able to showcase to their community the diversity of paths and opportunities in modern manufacturing. Students, teachers, parents, and others are fascinated to see what’s being made nearby.
If you are thinking about hosting an event, we encourage you to check out The Manufacturing Institute’s resources for hosts and remind you to register your event here. Your participation can be as small as inviting one class to see your operation. What matters is participating in this important day and inspiring the next generation.
If you are interested in attending an event in your local area, check out the thousands of events taking place across the country on October 4, 2019, and throughout the month of October. These events are a great way to see first-hand the careers available in manufacturing.
