Our region must create, attract and sustain a globally skilled workforce in order to meet the needs of the region’s existing and target industries. This is achieved through working with the education community, local workforce partners, community-based organizations and area businesses. A workforce with 21st century skills is critical for individual and metropolitan prosperity as well as business success. Therefore, the quality of our education system and workforce development initiatives is of the utmost importance.
On Thursday, March 3rd, The Lexington Forum has invited panelists Danette Wilder, President & CEO of SealingLife Technology, and Dr. Robert King, Kentucky Council for Postsecondary Education, to discuss current issues that our region faces when it comes to training our workforce. Wilder and King will talk about challenges and highlight training programs and educational initiatives that are working to ensure prosperity for our region’s future.
This panel will be moderated by Mark Green of The Lane Report.
