Update

One of our speakers, Elaine Barber will provide an overview of a newly created collaboration sponsored by the Greater Houston Partnership. For example, public and private sector partnerships can broaden opportunities to prepare young people for college and careers. Through collaboration business and education can produce a greater skilled and better prepared workforce that in turn enhances economic stability and growth.
