JOIN US! With coffee in hand, let's have a candid discussion about how we can collectively align employer talent needs with our K-12 public education in ways that have impact and address challenges on multiple fronts.

Overarching objectives:

  • exchange information among cross-sector stakeholders so they learn about and from each other
  • provide regional business and education leaders with an overview of resources and best practices available to them
  • spotlight effective business/education partnerships in the region and discuss how to bring them to scale
  • explore each region's education and workforce needs so that stakeholders can tailor responsiveness

Format: Breakfast, registration, and mingle starting at 7:30 AM; program begins at 8:00

  • introductions and overview of programs and policies in place that target workforce readiness
  • moderated discussion with panelists presenting the region's education and employer perspectives
  • questions and comments from the floor
