Join us on October 30th as we take a close look at how Oregon’s workforce will evolve over the next decades and how prepared, or unprepared, we are to meet the challenges that will bring.
Well be talking with individuals at the forefront of this radical evolution brought on by technology adoption, automation and rapidly changing demographics.
Topics will focus on:
- What will work in Oregon look like in ten or twenty years?
- How will we educate the next generation workforce to match the skills that industry demands to stay competitive?
- How can workforce training keep pace with the dramatic shifts in job skills?
What role do educators and employers play in closing the equity gap in the face of rapidly increasing demand for ever higher technical and problem-solving skill sets?
