Regional Workforce Symposium
Tuesday, June 10, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
What are the emerging trends in business and industry? What are the best ways to connect population centers and centers of employment? How can we offer regional solutions to workforce-related challenges? We invite you to join us at the Regional Workforce Symposium to explore these and other questions. This event will convene professionals across a diversity of sectors - workforce development, business, industry, education, government and policy, education, transportation, and planning - to learn about the most up-to-date economic trends in the eight-county region, and participate in facilitated discussions to brainstorm workforce strategies that are integrated with regional strategies for economic development, mobility, training and education. The region is comprised of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Sussex, Union, and Warren counties.
