In this episode, we talk with Sarah Boisvert, an entrepreneur with extensive work experience in manufacturing, laser technology in 3d printing, who has been focusing on workforce training. Digital fabrication technology is creating new manufacturing jobs that she calls "new collar jobs" which require digital and physical hands-on experience. In 2018, Sarah published "The New Collar Workforce: An Insider's Guide to Making Impactful Changes to Manufacturing and Training."
She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she runs a lab in association with the local community college where she's developed a certified program for 3D printing operators. In this conversation, we talk about digital badges for digital fabrication skills and how there should be better alternatives to college, how janitorial robots at WalMart need a human to take care of them, and how employers would like to find more people with problem solving skills, the number one skill they are asking for. Sarah has written the article "Fabricating the Future of Work" in Make Magazine Volume 75.
