There are many great ways to get involved in Manufacturing Day!
Manufacturing Day is an opportunity for companies and manufacturing professionals across the globe to celebrate the importance of manufacturing—to our economy, our communities, and our well-being.
Currently, there are more than 1,300 Manufacturing Day events scheduled. They range from plant tours and community events to job fairs and school functions. At many of these events, professionals in various areas of automation, engineering, and manufacturing will be meeting with young people — encouraging them to discover the joys of STEM-centric learning and career fields.
As supporters of Manufacturing Day, ISA and the Automation Federation hope that you’ll get involved. You could make a real difference in the lives of young people, and strengthen the automation profession for generations to come.
There’s still time to organize or participate in an event in your community.
