50% of Iowa's jobs require workers with middle skills, but only 33% of our workforce has those skills. Join us to learn more about the middle skills gap and how our education system and our business community can work together to develop citizens who possess the right skills for our changing society.
The Employer Educator Summit agenda will feature a number of speakers and round table discussions, all-the-while playing up this year's theme of creating a "Recipe for Workforce Success."
Tentative Agenda (9 am - 3 pm):
Do you have a great collaborative program between local business(es) and school(s) that you'd like to share? Submit your Workforce Warrior initiative by September 8th.
