Executive Director Tracey Carey from Midwest Urban Strategies set to moderate Navigating the Supply Chain Disruption in 2022
Workforce issues are driving today’s headlines. Labor, industry, and supply chains are all experiencing disruptions whose origins our system is poised to address. The workforce system must rise to the moment with the creative solutions is always has, for the sake of parents unable to access childcare, workers unable to find livable jobs, and communities struggling to persist through difficult times. The Forum, powered by the National Association of Workforce Boards, is the place and the time. It’s the nation’s largest annual workforce development conference, a convocation of the leaders, stakeholders, and policymakers with the power to drive positive change. This year, we will meet amid a moment of both critical need and transformational potential
NAWB represents approximately 550 Workforce Development Boards and their 12,000+ business members that coordinate and leverage workforce strategies with education and economic development stakeholders within their local communities, to ensure that state and local workforce development and job training programs meet the needs of employers. These investments in workforce development create a comprehensive system to provide America with a highly skilled workforce that competes in the global economy.
Hosted by NAWB, The Forum is a national conversation around our shared responsibility to meet the needs of businesses, career seekers, and local economies and drive America’s ability to compete in the global market. The Forum convenes leaders, advocates, and changemakers in business, government, labor, and education to 1) network and share insights; 2) address key issues affecting U.S. workforce development; 3) consider the goals and policy framework affecting the future of human capital and economic growth.
Navigating the Supply Chain Disruption in 2022 - Georgetown East
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, many people took the supply chain for granted. Many news outlets did not even have a newsbeat covering this topic as they do today. Today, manufacturers, warehouses, transportation providers, distribution centers, and retailers are all topics of mainstream media with respect to the supply chain disruption, and what must be done to resolve this national emergency. Join us for a conversation with industry leaders as we discuss the complexities of the current situation and how best to address it. This will be a moderated discussion with Q&A to follow.
