Lory Antonucci is the Director of the Workforce Innovations and Solutions center of excellence in Manpower Manufacturing. A partner across ManpowerGroup focusing on future workplace drivers, client needs, and workforce opportunities, Lory manages a diverse portfolio of applied research, client delivery, and strategic operational support. With Manufacturing a key ManpowerGroup global focus, her work here is both informed by her cross-industry experience and leveraged across ManpowerGroup’s wider range of sectors. Lory’s previous experiences, ranging from healthcare to global technology services to advanced manufacturing and more, enable her success in creating today’s roadmaps to tomorrow’s horizons. Often attracted to and requested to help solve for the messier or more macro enterprise or industry global issues, Lory leads integrated project teams on public and commercial initiatives that support federal innovation institutes, national and statewide workforce planning teams, foundations and research agencies, and major commercial clients. This array helps her keep diverse perspectives, find a shared space, and create connected solutions. Her “look for the trees AND the forest” perspective helps especially in these dynamic and disruptive times. Some of the targets of her and her team’s more recent future jobs agenda has included: digital era transformation; talent ecosystems; advanced manufacturing digital change; semiconductor and material science future jobs; Cybersecurity Workforce futures; the Modern Mining talent cycle; business continuity and organizational leader resilience; workforce disruptions and distributed workplaces; and green/turquoise jobs. Lory has been studying and applying biology and nature’s genius even longer than she’s been improving business and workforce performance. She credits her start to a family legacy of long blueberry picking forest walks, required garden and animal tending, and endless beach and lakeside labs for her adult practice of integrating natural and social science into all aspects of business. Her passion for improving connected communities and workforce systems benefits from her BA at Stanford in Human Biology and Systems; her M. ED. in Educational Technology; and her more recent global travels and training as part of the Certified Biomimicry Professionals program and Biomimicry M. S. Program work at Arizona State. For Lory and for every work sector, today’s opportunities in future workforce targets and planning, green jobs, bio business, sustainability, and resilience are all a perfect storm of challenge and solution.
