A3 to Kick Off Automate 2017 with White Paper on Jobs in the Automation Age

Today the Association for Advancing Automation (A3) announced that it will release its newest white paper titled "Work in the Automation Age: Sustainable Careers Today and Into the Future" at Automate 2017, North America's premier event devoted to leading-edge automation technology and business innovation to be held at Chicago's McCormick Place April 3-6. The white paper explores the impact of automation on the ever-evolving job market and the growing shortage of skilled employees with experience and training in advanced technologies. A3 examines the types of jobs that are going unfilled and reviews workforce development initiatives, including education, apprenticeships, and on-the-job training that will fill labor shortages and support ongoing economic growth and productivity. 
The white paper will open Automate 2017 at a jobs forum titled "Working in the Automation Age" on Monday, April 3 at 10:30 a.m. Speakers at the event include: Jeff Burnstein, President, A3; Juan Garcia, Global Leader, Amazon Career Development; Rebecca Hartley, Chief Workforce Development Officer, Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute; Ritch Ramey, Coordinator, RAMTEC Ohio; and Paul Aiello, Director of CERT Sales and Operations, FANUC America.
