Engaging and inspiring the next generation of manufacturers

Based on The Manufacturing Institute’s national best practice model, CCAT’s Industry Ambassador Program is designed to create greater awareness about careers in manufacturing and technology with a focus on inspiring women and people of color.

Industry Ambassadors represent emerging manufacturing employees that are committed, energetic, and driven within operations, technical support, business support, and quality assurance roles. Serving as an Industry Ambassador helps to showcase modern CT Manufacturing companies and provide valuable professional development.


Make a difference by sharing your passion about manufacturing and career experiences with students and job seekers in a variety of ways, including:

  • Speaking at industry events
  • Providing perspectives about your work and career journey
  • Hosting site visits and tours
  • Participating in media opportunities

If you are a manufacturing employee in an operations, technical support, business support, or quality assurance role – let us know if you’re interested in participating! CCAT also invites your company to nominate emerging employees to become Industry Ambassadors.

Contact us to learn how you or someone you know can be a part of this unique and impactful manufacturing advocacy program! Participate and highlight your company while informing, inspiring and recruiting the next generation.
