Talent for tomorrow's workforce

As the demand for a qualified workforce increases, we need more up-skilled talent with industry certificates and postsecondary degrees to power our economy.

Join us on November 10th as we inspire business, education, and community leaders to come together to gauge and recognize regional progress on efforts to develop future talent across public and higher education. We'll also feature ways to align all levels of education and workforce needs to improve student preparation for college and for the 21st century workplace.

Working together, we can shrink opportunity gaps, deepen our regional talent pool to help power companies’ growth, and build a more inclusive economy.
