Workforce and Business

Oct 04, 2016

This is one article in a series that highlights each of the four “strands” or themes that all 2016 Summit exhibits and sessions fall under: Early Education, K-12 Education, Higher Education and Workforce & Business.

The Massachusetts economy is viewed as technology-driven and robust. But, not all participate and many face significant barriers to employment. Workforce and business issues are important at all levels of education, from preschool through college, for both in-school and out-of-school time programs, and come in a wide variety of forms.

This Strand will focus on broad strategies for engaging employers at all education levels and turning that engagement into something more than just participation in a once a year advisory board meeting. Presenters will share their knowledge of community supports; education, skills and job training; policy approaches; and effective practices. What works and what does not is the topic of the day.
