Event Details

As we strive to diversify and strengthen the region’s economy, Hampton Roads faces a labor shortage it has not seen in decades. Both existing and new businesses need to draw on a well-trained, highly competitive workforce that reflects the shifting demands in job skillsets. The Hampton Roads Community Foundation, in partnership with the Hampton Roads Workforce Council, commissioned a six-month workforce gap analysis to gauge the region’s workforce competitiveness and help create a regional talent alignment strategy. 

Join us at this breakfast form to be among the first people to results of this unprecedented workforce study and 2019 Hampton Roads Talent Alignment Strategy produced by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and Avalanche Consulting Inc. 

The forum includes a presentation on the workforce gap analysis and a follow-up panel  of regional experts. Featured will be: 

Jade Arn, Director of Workforce and Economic Development, CAEL
Angela Gallagher, Senior Associate for Workforce Analytics, CAEL


Dr. Larry “Chip” Filer, Associate Vice President for Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, Old Dominion University
Dr. Johnny Garcia, Chief Executive Officer, SimIS Inc.
Dr. Daniel Lufkin, President, Paul D. Camp Community College
