    Event Description:
     
    How are We Developing the Workforce of the Future?
     
    Talent attraction continues to be a pain point in most communities around the country, and we feel it acutely here in West Michigan. We already know that many of the jobs of the future don't even exist today, so where do you look for guidance on how to prepare for the workforce of the future? It's a hot topic in education, and one we're bringing to our Wake Up West Coast Breakfast this month. Future proofing our workforce is a top priority for both our educators and the organizations that are having troubles filling roles that they have open today. What are schools doing to assess the needs of the global workforce, and how are they gearing up to provide relevant educational opportunities for all students? Panelists today will share a range of initiatives in the Ottawa Area, designed to best meet the talent needs of our evolving workforce.
