The Critical Need for the New Collar Workforce

DIGITAL EXPERIENCE
Friday, November 13, 2020

OUR WORLD HAS CHANGED

Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Medical device manufacturers, and aerospace technologies are all looking for talent now to meet the demand for innovation.

We are taking action NOW. TODAY is the time to realign ourselves. COVID has sharpened our lens farther and we are pivoting our perceptions of education. We measure, define, and ultimately hire talent in vastly new ways.

Combining new technological skills and traditional trades is the key to tomorrow’s innovation workforce. How do these emergent new needs impact education and the talent pipeline? New digital credentialing tools allow portability and standardization of education.

The realignment of the educational infrastructure allows for greater attainability and a more diversified talent pool. Through this new credentialing system, individuals will be able to up their game by enrolling in short, high impact classes that will earn them layers of digital credentialing.

The New England Maker Summit 2020 focuses on the New Collar Workforce and brings together experts in manufacturing, Maker movement industry leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, and curious minds to explore: “The Critical Need for the New Collar Workforce”
