Manufacturing Industry Partnership

In 2012, the Rhode Island Manufacturing Extension Service (now Polaris MEP) was awarded a grant from the Governor's Workforce Board Rhode Island (GWBRI) to form the Manufacturing Industry Partnership (MIP).

MIP is an industry-driven group comprised of representatives from the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association (RIMA) and a diverse cross-section of employers in the manufacturing sector. The partnership develops strategies and executes initiatives to address the skills gaps that exist among Rhode Island's workforce, education and training providers and the needs of the industry in order to create a well-qualified manufacturing workforce pipeline.
