Event description

Description

Here in the North Bay, we have great examples of successful partnerships between companies and education entities. But it's not enough. North Bay companies need a consistent, at-scale pipeline of skilled workers. And students and jobseekers need clear access to good jobs. That's why we are taking our efforts to the next level by designing and launching Industry-Education Partnerships for our most critical industry sectors: Manufacturing and Healthcare.

Here's why you need to participate, starting with attending the October 24th North Bay Summit:

For Companies, Industry Partnerships become a place to solve major talent issues, and to address other issues related to shared competitiveness. They also become a single table at which to work with multiple public entities. They exist all over the country, with real evidence of cost savings, improved recruitment and retention, increased productivity, and positive business-to-business networking.

For Educators and Workforce organizations, Industry Partnerships are a venue for faster understanding of changing industry needs, and a shared vehicle to build and refine curriculum and credentials. They often become the keystone to successful career pathways.

The Summit represents an important turning point for our region, and a call to action for all of us to join forces together. Do not miss out. Industry Partnerships in Manufacturing and in Healthcare will be launched shortly after.
