"Workforce of the Future" (LGO conference panel)

Panel discussion at MIT LGO conference on "The Future of Manufacturing in the U.S." (May 8, 2012)

Moderator: William D. Green (Accenture)
Panelists: Denise Johnson (Caterpillar), Cindy Estrada (United Auto Workers), Thomas Kochan (MIT), Diana Tremblay (General Motors)
 
How have the economic downturn and recovery impacted labor-management relations, K-12, vocational, and university education, and other factors that shape the ongoing development of an effective American manufacturing workforce? How are the interests of multinational corporations aligned with the objective of maintaining vibrant manufacturing employment as a key element in the U. S. economy? Can the U.S. learn from the important role of vocational education in other developed economies?
 
The panel addresses the roles of different stakeholders—government at all levels, industry, unions, and educational institutions—in contributing to dialogue around the key challenges in creating more high-wage manufacturing jobs, especially in the advanced manufacturing sector.
