The Future of Manufacturing
in the Midwest

The Manufacturing industry is coming back in a big way in the US. In the Midwest and across the country, thousands of well-paying jobs in this high-growth field are going unfilled.


In a special webinar, we’ll be sitting down with local experts Sarah Hartwick from Illinois Manufacturers’ Association, Lee A. Reese from St. Clair County Intergovernmental Grants Department, as well as Mitch Dickey, Transfr’s State Workforce Manager, who are deep in the weeds in the Midwest to talk about the opportunities and challenges for manufacturers, educators, and other groups in the area. Plus get a chance to ask questions about career exploration, the manufacturing industry, and more!


Webinar: Transfr’s The Future of Manufacturing in the Midwest
