Show Notes

In a time when unprecedented industry growth is expected, the microelectronics industry is in the midst of a workforce shortage. To address this, the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society – IMAPS – is increasing its efforts to raise awareness about this rewarding industry through partnerships with universities and high schools. 

 Simultaneously, companies that serve the microelectronics industry are ramping up internship programs and coming up with new approaches to recruitment to help attract and retain young talent. 

In this episode, recorded live at the IMAPS International Symposium on October 4, 2023, Françoise sits down with three high school students from the Carlsbad Highschool Robotics Clubs, Demetrios Dresios, Vaselios Dresios, and Kendra Ammon, who attended the event to learn more about the industry. 

 They talk about what got them interested in robotics, how it has shaped their ideas about careers, and what they want to study. They also talk about what they learned at the symposium. 

Next, Françoise interviews Roberta Foster-Smith and Gabriela Philips, of Nordson Electronics Solutions, about Gabriela’s experience in Nordson’s Commercial Leadership Development program.

 Next week, on the 3D InCites podcast, Françoise hands over the mike to Dan Krueger, Honeywell, as he moderates a panel on Diversity in Packaging, Past, Present and Future. Don’t miss this lively town hall discussion on many important topics in today’s challenging work environment, including the important differences between equity and equality in the workplace.
