Event Information

America is facing a very real and very challenging talent gap in today’s workforce. Much of the incoming workforce lacks the skills, knowledge and drive needed for today’s jobs. A panel of experts will discuss the talent gap and what types of innovative approaches businesses and educators are, or should be, taking to solve the issue.
