The Workforce Development Institute is hosting an event at 1001 Crooked Hill Rd., Brentwood, NY 11717 from 11:00am to 12:30pm on October 2, 2015 and is open to members of the Long Island Community.
The event will recognize Long Island’s Millennial Makers and launch a new effort to rebrand local manufacturing by creating awareness around the existing family-owned maker businesses and the millennials who are helping them succeed in the 21st century. A video highlighting Long Island’s Maker companies, their CEO’s and young professionals funded by WDI will be unveiled. The event will also feature a panel discussion exploring the evolution of the local industry, the rewards and challenges of operating a manufacturing business on Long Island, the new trend of millennials looking to work locally and the career paths that are enabling them to innovate, contribute to business growth, and advance professionally.
The Long Island Makers: Millennials Making Manufacturing video is an initiative of the Workforce & Education Work Group of the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council and was possible through the support of the Workforce Development Institute (WDI) a statewide 501©3 non-profit that improves the lives of working men and women across New York State by providing targeted programs in workforce, economic, and community development. – See more at: longislandmakers.com
