SME recognizes the achievements and contributions of the Hispanic community as it relates to manufacturing. We understand that the labor force consists of a diverse group of individuals, and we support manufacturers who are embracing that diversity by actively implementing a workforce management strategy to leverage the talent of all people. Manufacturing thrives when people of all backgrounds join together. Manufacturing, across industries, is at its best when the voices of all community members are being heard. Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to recognize the voices within the Hispanic community and STEM fields. It’s important to acknowledge the positive impact this community has on manufacturing.
