Event Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Indianapolis Marriott East
A partnership of Purdue University, Indiana Chamber of Commerce, Lilly Endowment, Inc., Indiana Commission for Higher Education and Indiana INTERNnet
How can we educate and train our workforce to fit the current and emerging employment opportunities in Indiana companies and how can we retain our graduates to fill the skills/education gaps? These challenges are not new and although government, business and industry, and educational institutions have mounted concerted efforts to address them, Indiana businesses currently have unfilled jobs due to a lack of skilled candidates and a significant proportion of graduates from Indiana colleges and universities leave the state.
This workshop seeks to frame and detail the challenges, solicit a variety of viewpoints and bring the range of stakeholders together in working groups to formulate ideas and plans to address these issues. Your input is requested!
This workshop is designed for the following:
All Indiana stakeholders: state, regional and local governments, human resource professionals, business and industry leaders, secondary and higher education institutions, philanthropic organizations and students
List price: $49
