Gary A. Officer, our President and CEO, appeared at The Forum 2023, the annual gathering of the National Association of Workforce Boards and the nation’s largest annual workforce development conference. The Forum brings together thought-leaders, policymakers, and stakeholders to discuss policy, initiatives, and trends. Attendees deepen their understanding of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, hear practical examples of its application, and get to ask questions of our system’s foremost experts.
Preparing for an Inclusive Workforce was a panel discussion moderated by Jane Oates, President of WorkingNation. The panelists discussed the need for a fundamental re-evaluation of our workforce priorities, an inclusive approach to upskilling, and a willingness to embrace the many talents—and skills—embedded within this segment of the workforce.
