Let’s Grow the Trades

With an estimated 10 million global manufacturing jobs currently unfilled, the trade skills gap is an urgent challenge. That’s why we’re committing $30 million in grant money over five years to nonprofits – helping fund important vocational skills training and reskilling programs in construction. Together we can close the trade skills gap and help grow the trades.
