Take the Pledge for Action

Thank you for stepping forward to act—to increase equity and parity for underrepresented communities in the United States.

The manufacturing executives on the National Association of Manufacturers’ Task Force on Closing the Opportunity Gap and the NAM Board of Directors, which adopted the task force’s recommendations, believe strongly that as an industry, we must go beyond pledging to act and outline specifically what we will be doing over the coming years. We want to say publicly, “Here is our goal, we will measure our progress, and we will hold ourselves accountable for the results we are committing to.” To that end, The Manufacturing Institute, the 501(c)3 workforce development and education partner of the NAM, will support the industry’s efforts and track our progress.

Complete this form to add your company to manufacturers’ combined efforts to make a difference—and to take the Pledge for Action.

By 2025, manufacturers commit to taking 50,000 tangible actions to increase equity and parity for underrepresented communities, creating 300,000 pathways to job opportunities for Black people and all people of color. In doing so, manufacturing will reflect the diversity of the overall U.S. workforce by 2030.
