Be Pro. Be Proud.

Igniting a movement to bring the pride back to skilled trade jobs.

The biggest topic in today’s workforce is the lack of skilled workers in the fields of advanced manufacturing and construction – The Skills Gap. As more skilled workers move into retirement, many high school graduates do not see these jobs as economically viable or career-worthy. A cultural perception is that a college degree is the only path
to success.

Stone Ward, in cooperation with the Arkansas State Chamber, created a licensed program to influence how people think about the job opportunities provided by skilled professions and persuade them to consider this career path as a feasible, lucrative option.

The license entitles regional or state economic development or private sector organizations to use the brand and its proven assets, including a website, and consulting expertise to launch or enhance
the Skills Gap initiative in their area.
