Preparing the Workforce of Today and Tomorrow

Michigan needs workers capable of being part of the workforce of today and in the future. Every year our high schools are graduating students capable of becoming those workers. Colleges are tailoring their offerings to meet the needs of the workforce. And workers are getting retrained to gain new skills. A panel of experts will discuss programs in place to enhance the job readiness of Michigan residents by providing opportunity for either career technology training or preparing them for comprehensive and transferable college degrees.

A panel of individuals with varying perspectives has been invited. The panel will take questions from the moderator and the audience to share perspectives and ideas in a conversational format.


Lunch will be served.

Panelists include:

Brandy Johnson from Michigan College Access Network

Jenn Nelson from Business Leaders for Michigan

Susan Porrett from Davenport University
