                     Caitlin Andrews, Director, PRG    
                     Manufacturing is back and booming.  As new jobs are created, more workers are needed with the
                     brains and skills to keep American manufacturing competitive and cutting-edge.  Members of
                     MFG NXT are the industry’s best ambassadors.  This session is geared toward expanding
                     your opportunities to speak up for manufacturing and developing the communication strategies
                     you’ll need to make a lasting impression.  During this brief workshop, we’ll explore best practices
                     for talking about careers in modern manufacturing.  We’ll look at examples from industry leaders
                     and turn to research on what works.  Attendees will leave with a guidebook for profile raising,
