Education and workforce issues remain some of the most pressing challenges facing business and industry in our state. A number of business leaders have deemed Tennessee students' persistent skills gap and workforce shortages to be a "crisis" that threatens our economic growth and competitiveness.
Leaders of business and industry, local chambers, workforce and economic development agencies, and Tennessee’s higher education community are all hard at work to constantly strengthen our state’s workforce preparedness and close skills gaps. We hope you will come learn more about the work they are doing and share your thoughts and opinions on the future direction of education and workforce policies and best practices.
Please make plans to join us for a unique conference where we will cover a host of timely and pressing workforce topics and engage with business, education, and community leaders to navigate a path forward and explore potential solutions that promise to remedy employers’ top concerns.
