Jesse Salazar, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for industrial policy, presented a strategy that tackles how the Pentagon plans to address industrial workforce challenges.

Salazar spoke about the "Department of Defense's Perspectives on Industrial Workforce Challenges” on Wednesday at the Accelerated Training in Defense Manufacturing Summit, which took place in Danville, Virginia, DOD said Friday.

DOD's Office of Industrial Policy has awarded $4.3 million to the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research to develop, implement and assess methods through which ATDM can more quickly build a manufacturing workforce that meets maritime production requirements.

The award supports and expands ongoing efforts under the office's Industrial Base Analysis and Sustainment program.
