Co-Hosted by AMEP

Manufacturing leaders, changemakers, and innovators, please join us for our featured speaker:  Dr. Ellen Frank-Miller, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Workforce & Organizational Research Center (WORC) .

The job quality definitions and frameworks can provide a window into the range of attributes that drive worker experiences: wages, benefits, scheduling, legal rights, equity and inclusion, opportunity to build skills and advance, supportive work environment, and worker voice.

> Hear from a CT manufacturer who has created change around job quality
