Where is the Talent?

Tuesday – 1pm – 3pm

As materials, processes and tooling become more complex, the demand for a highly skilled workforce becomes even more critical.  How does the U.S. address this work skill need when fewer people are attracted to this sector of the industry? What talent development models work to produce the number of apprentices needed and how can the U.S. motivate a stronger pipeline of talent? The Talent session at T3 will address these questions and more.
