    Yesterday, The National Association of Manufacturers' Executive Committee unanimously voted to pass the Pledge for Actionan 11-point commitment plan for manufacturers to advance justice, equality and opportunity for black people and all people of color.


    "My heart is heavy with recent events," said Michael W. Lamach, chairman and CEO of Trane Technologies and chair of the NAM Board of Directors. "While the killing of George Floyd sparked this outcry, this is a crisis that has gone unaddressed for far too long. We introduced this Pledge for Action to demonstrate our companies', our association's and our industry's commitment to being part of the solution and to stand against injustice and create a better future for the black community and all communities of color."

    To view the full pledge and share your support, visit the NAM Pledge for Action webpage.

    CALL TO ACTION: #MFG Women Community, how are your companies advancing justice, equality and opportunity for black people and all people of color?    We are interested in hearing your stories, seeing your commitment statements and action plans.
