Hosted by NJ Advanced Manufacturing Talent Network (M-NJ) and the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), with funding from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, this meeting will help to identify and find solutions to the manufacturing industry’s most pressing workforce needs.
Attendees will work together within the following committees: needs assessment, career pathways and outreach. Needs assessment collects, analyzes and confirms skills needed by manufacturers.
Career pathways works within the industry to define national industry-recognized credentials and determine skills gaps, as well as to establish training that leads to career pathways which provide candidates with stackable credentials.
Light refreshments will be provided.

The NJIT-led Advanced Manufacturing Talent Network, ManufactureNJ (M-NJ), is an industry-demand side-driven approach responding to current and future employment and education needs within this rapidly changing industry.
With continued support from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the network has become an important change agent empowering an ever-growing number of New Jersey companies and New Jersey educators to effectively integrate advanced manufacturing technologies into daily operations and curricula respectively.
It also acts to facilitate this effort across a large number of New Jersey companies not normally thought of as “manufacturers,” such as those in biomedical devices, pharmaceuticals, engineering technologies, computers and electronics, chemicals, transportation equipment, machinery, electrical equipment and petroleum, to name a few.
