Demand for "middle skills" jobs in the state is strong, and will likely remain so for years to come. These jobs--which require more than a high school diploma, but less than a four-year degree--could be key to our state's economic growth. Does Connecticut have a workforce prepared to fill them?
Join us for an insightful forum on the skills gap, moderated by John Dankosky of WNPR, and taped for later broadcast on Where We Live.
Leticia Colon, Hartford Hospital Community Relations and Special Projects, and owner of Energy Efficiency Solutions, LLC Frank Gulluni, Director, Manufacturing Technology Center, Asnuntuck Community College Deb Migneault, Connecticut Commission on Aging, Legislative and Community Liaison Kim Oliver, Manager, Workforce Solutions Collaborative of Metro Hartford
