Science for Georgia Presents: Education & Workforce Panel Series

 

Join Science for Georgia on the following Wednesdays, June 16, June 30, July 14, July 28 at 1:00 PM EDT, for discussions about how Georgia’s citizens keep up with the science and technology workforce demand.

Georgia’s STEM economy is booming, but the pipeline for qualified employees will run dry unless state leaders act quickly to address the needs of employers who are already struggling to fill good-paying jobs in careers offering pathways to fulfilling middle-class livelihoods.

To understand how to achieve an optimized pipeline with all systems working together, a broad coalition of advocacy, education, and technology organizations will assemble leading professionals in a four-part online series to identify gaps in workforce development initiatives and develop solutions to fill them, solutions that will help guide state and community leaders, educators, and business owners as they work to ensure that Georgia’s STEM talent is robust and ready to succeed.

Sponsors of the web series include Science for Georgia (the local affiliate of the AAAS LSEN), Technology Association of Georgia, Urban League of Greater Atlanta, Partners in Change, Literacy for All, and Science is US, a Washington, DC-based foundation-supported effort that brings together a diverse group of science, engineering, industry, higher education and labor organizations to advocate for science-based public policies.
