Flagship MFG Day Events

Flagship Events

On October 28, 2020, we brought together Jacky Wright, Chief Digital Officer (CDO) and Corporate Vice President at Microsoft US, and Carolyn Lee, Executive Director of The Manufacturing Institute, to discuss how the NAM, the MI and Microsoft are helping address the skills gap in manufacturing and ensuring the benefits of technology reach people more broadly across society.

The official anchor event for MFG Day 2020 events across the country, The Manufacturing Institute’s program–presented by Salesforce, PTC and Rockwell Automation–celebrates modern manufacturing in America and aims to excite students about opportunities in the industry.

Influencers are so much a part of popular culture. But influencers don’t just come in the form of social media stars, but also through the stars in our classrooms: teachers. That’s why The Manufacturing Institute is hosting a MFG Day event for America’s teachers—presented by PTC —to help teachers learn more of what’s possible for their students in a career in modern manufacturing.

America’s creators have mobilized to respond to COVID-19, making a difference. This event, presented by Walmart, showcases some of those creators and shares their stories–to get a better sense of what modern manufacturing careers look like today and what they can mean for the next generation tomorrow.
