Industry Led . Demand Driven . Data Informed . Collective Action
Manufacturing has been the heart and soul of our community for many years, positioning Akron, Summit County and Northeast Ohio as a competitive regional economy and global player. Our goal is to ensure companies have access to the talent they need to remain competitive and grow. It’s also important to us that every resident can access good-paying jobs that lead to great careers in manufacturing. So, we support manufacturing leaders to collaborate with education and training partners to design curriculum that prepares people with relevant skills. Workforce partners are at the table to build capacity to connect people with opportunities. And together, partners generate solutions to fill gaps in the talent supply chain and remove barriers to employment.
