SME SPEAKS


ents did not see manufacturing as a well-paying employment choice for their children. And 50% did not see manufacturing as an exciting, challenging or engaging profession. If parents’ and counselors’ perceptions are flawed about the opportunities in US manufacturing, it is little wonder that students are not exploring the classes needed to excel in industry or the training to do important work as soon as they graduate. Leaders in industry, along with teachers and administrators, need to offer the message often that there is opportunity, wages and benefits, satisfaction and fulfilment in manufacturing careers. If you are involved in manufacturing as an employee, manager or executive, or in academia, I encourage you to be informed and involved. SME and the SME Education Founda- tion have great tools and resources available to create interest in, support for and messaging that clarifies manufacturing. Ex- plore SME Membership to access expertise, relationships and mentor programs in your area. Work your own schools and postsecondary training programs. Find a way to help teach about what you do: How you innovate, what you make. Manufacturing built our country, created wealth across a population and ultimately defined the global presence of America. But we’re not managing our key manufacturing resource very well—people. It’s time companies, professional organizations, schools, administrators and educators work closely together; united to ensure bright careers for prepared and skilled workers in manufacturing. SME, the SME Education Foundation and Tooling U-SME are gold sponsors of Manufacturing Day, a celebration meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. MFG DAY


will be held Oct. 7, 2016. Learn more about SME’s planned activities and engagement at sme.org/mfgday.
