Elevate Advanced Manufacturing is a statewide, integrated marketing initiative of the Iowa Association of Business and Industry Foundation to promote careers and educational pathways in advanced manufacturing. This begins with building a positive perception of these careers while addressing misconceptions of work environment, safety and wages.

Elevate Advanced Manufacturing operates in partnership with the Iowa-Advanced Manufacturing (I-AM) Consortium, which is comprised of Iowa’s 15 community colleges. I-AM collaborates to build the training capacity necessary to meet industry demand and arm Iowans with the skills they need to engage in Iowa’s workforce.
