Enhancing the Talent Pipeline: Near-term and Long-term solutions to fill your talent needs

MICHauto hosted “Enhancing the Talent Pipeline:  Near-term and Long-Term solutions to fill your talent needs” on Monday, July 9, 2012 at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago – Detroit Branch.

Since its launch in January, MICHauto has been hard at work building a coalition of industry executives, developing Michigan-centric promotional materials, engaging in business attraction activities, and connecting stakeholders to address the industry’s engineering talent shortage.  The Detroit Regional Chamber’s MICHauto program hosted an event focused on increasing the number of engineers in the talent pipeline and introducing new programs that assist private industry in solving their immediate engineering needs.  Attendees were educated on four topics: private industry involvement in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education reform; corporate immigration assistance and foreign-born recruitment; the utilization of academia’s research and development capabilities; and a unique engineering internship program.
