The Manufacturing Institute

Focused on building safe, prosperous, vibrant communities, Union Pacific’s workforce development efforts focus on putting youth on the right track, raising awareness of middle skills jobs like those offered by Union Pacific, and educating and preparing young adults for career readiness.

We are proud to partner with the Manufacturing Institute (MI) to accomplish these goals through a new initiative called “Careers On Track”. The initiative supports workforce development and career solutions for women and will include creating a digital STEM curriculum, a virtual 3D mapping STEM experience and a STEM micro-grant program for young women.

The MI will also leverage existing programs such as Heroes MAKE America, the STEP Women's Initiative, and its youth engagement platform to launch a digital campaign to bring awareness to the workforce gender gap and inspire the next generation of workers.
