Recap | Summer Workforce Summit

by Kaitlin Motley | Jun 22, 2015
On June 4, KCnext hosted our Summer Workforce Summit, the second session in the three-part event series that brings together the tech industry with academia for direct, open conversation about pain points and opportunities in tech training and hiring.

KCnext's goal throughout the Workforce Summit series is to listen and learn from the industry and education experts in the room. At the end of 2015, we will compile our notes and learnings from all three Workforce Summit sessions and evaluate them to identify areas where KCnext can make an impact. 

Whereas the Spring Workforce Summit focused on tech training in K-12, the Summer Workforce Summit focused on tech training in higher education. Several common themes surfaced between the two sessions. Our third and final session, on September 10, will focus on nontraditional tech training programs.

We look forward to working with our Board of Directors and Board of Advisors to develop a strategy based upon what we learn from the Workforce Summit series.
