Together, The Century Foundation and the Urban Manufacturing Alliance have assembled a cohort of eight leading urban workforce development organizations forging diversity, equity, and inclusion in manufacturing—an effort we’re calling Industry and Inclusion. Our cohort members are seizing on seismic changes in technology and manufacturing, and advancing an inclusive future for the production economy. Join us on Wednesday, September 30 at 2:30 PM EST as we explore ways in which people of color can build wealth through opportunities in manufacturing—from entry-level careers with pathways to management, ownership, and entrepreneurship. In this webinar, cohort members and other partners will be discussing how their organizations’ programs are leading to more sustainable, equitable, and just outcomes in their communities.
