Description

CLOSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP: Helping People Acquire 21st Century Work Skills

The 2017 OC Community Indicators Report confirms that both our national and Orange County economies suffer from a skills gap, as thousands of jobseekers entering the labor force don't have the skills that employers need. In other words, there are many who want to work, but lack the necessary skills required in Orange County's labor market.

Join us for our second Future Focus learning event where we will examine what's at stake for our community and economy and explore meaningful strategies to fill this opportunity gap.

FEATURED SPEAKERS

We are thrilled to introduce our keynote speaker Carla Javits, CEO of The Roberts Enterprise Development Fund (REDF), who will share insights from REDF's pioneering venture philanthropy that creates jobs and transforms lives through investments nationwide including in Orange County.


You'll also hear from a local panel, including Dr. Wallace Walrod, Chief Economic Advisor for the Orange County Business Council.
