Manufacturing Institute

Attracting, training and retaining talent while inspiring the next generation of manufacturers.

Funded by non-dues contributions, The Manufacturing Institute (MI) – the NAM’s workforce and education partner – drives this charge through a variety of programs designed to excite, educate and empower with a particular focus in four key areas: women, veterans, youth and lifelong learning.

The Manufacturing Institute also serves as the leading authority on data and research for the industry through its Center for Manufacturing Research, which closely examines issues of importance to manufacturers to increase understanding and spotlight solutions.
