WORKFORCE SOLUTIONS

November 2011

 

Greetings!

 

There's increasing concern among US employers that today's young adults lack the skills needed to succeed in the 21st century workforce. This fact has placed a significant spotlight on our educational system and their role in addressing an ever-widening skill gap.

 

Are you a business leader concerned about future workforce needs?  Or, an educational leader struggling with ways to connect the work your doing  today with the future your students will face? 

 

If you answer yes to either of these questions, you won't want to miss this business, industry and education forum.  See the details below and register for this complimentary event today.

"College for all"

might be the mantra,

but the hard reality is that fewer than one in three young people achieve the dream.
