Event description

Description

Join CPTV’s Life Lessons series for a one-hour town hall forum focusing on pathways to success in Advanced Manufacturing, hosted by Eric Clemons.

As students seek meaningful career opportunities and employers look toward the workforce of the future, an entire industry looks to reimagine what success looks like for high school graduates.
Panelists from the Advanced Manufacturing industry and education and school counseling experts will discuss how the journey to manufacturing careers has changed over the years, how the intersection of race, class, economic opportunity and issues of inclusion factor into the industry, and how a mindset change can help fill the need for skilled and driven talent.

Panelists:
Rocco Calo, Principal Officer of Teamsters Local 1150
Al Floyd, President of Floyd Manufacturing
Frank Gulluni, Director Emeritus of Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center at Asnuntuck CC
Dr. Salvatore Menzo, Superintendent of Wallingford Schools
Kathy Saint, President of Schwerdtle Stamp Co.

Attendees can submit questions before the event through their Eventbrite registration, via email at lifelessons@cptv.org, or by twitter by replying to @CPTVonline with the hashtag #cptvlifelessons.
