This is working. This just isn’t working.
Talent pipeline. Workforce development. Career pathways. Upskilling. The buzz words in workforce are never-ending. Addressing poverty, labor force participation rates, recidivism, daycare shortages can seem overwhelming, but there are solutions that can be implemented in any size community. Leveraging her nearly 20 years of experience in a myriad of sectors, Nancy will share ideas and best practices in workforce development that through collaboration can create meaningful success. With the ever-shifting trends in the global economy, Nancy will review what we are learning each day and what we can do differently to support our current and prospective employers.
