Jobs for the Future (JFF) is hosting a two day virtual institute that will provide manufacturing industry leaders with a unique opportunity to learn about best practices for hiring and retaining women.
Manufacturers must reassess and adjust their operations as the COVID-19 crisis continues with a focus on rebuilding a more versatile, diverse workforce in order to contribute to a stronger, more equitable economy. In these talent recruitment and development activities, evidence shows manufacturing employers will perform better if women are significantly represented in the workforce. Yet, the industry still comprises only approximately 30 percent women.
This 2-day virtual institute will provide manufacturing industry leaders and stakeholders with a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss best practices for hiring, training, and retaining women and help the manufacturing industry build a more robust talent pipeline. Participants are able to register for one or both days in the event page.
