The first webinar on April 22nd will prepare workforce, economic, education, and community leaders with the knowledge and skills to strengthen their workforce pipeline by enhanced partnerships with K-12 education. The webinar will feature case studies on building the skilled trades workforce, creating a teacher externship program, and building the interest of young women in non-traditional career fields.
