Strong Talent Drives Strong Economies: A Webinar on Workforce and Economic Development

Date: Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Time: 11:00 AM PST | 2:00 PM EST

As anyone in state and local government will tell you, government agencies and workforce investment boards have a greater responsibility today than in the past to encourage and help implement workforce initiatives that spur economic development.

In October 2013, Governing hosted a summit of state and local leaders, educational leaders and workforce development experts from the public sector to discuss strategies for developing local workforce initiatives and driving economic growth. During the “Strong Talent Drives Strong Economies” summit, attendees shared best practices and innovative programs for collaboration among government, education, nonprofit and business sectors to create workforce development opportunities.

Join GOVERNING as we host a webinar to discuss the key themes and best practices that were covered during the “Strong Talent Drives Strong Economies” summit including:

  • Aligning Workforce and Economic Development Programs and Strategies
  • Using Workforce Data for Better Decision-Making
  • Developing Talent Pipelines
  • Filling Skills Gap
  • Employing and Training Veterans
