Mark Your Calendars for the 2018 Employer Educator Summit
Employers have openings across a variety of fields. The skills gap in the U.S. is particularly acute in the construction industry, with the U.S. Department of Labor estimating that nearly 7 million jobs will need to be filled by 2024. Be a part of the solution as we gather educators and employers in a one-day summit to discuss strategies to ensure our students have the skills they need to succeed in all types of careers in our region’s economy.
