Educating Your Future Workforce:
A Forum For Employers

Featuring a panel of executives from leading companies and
Commissioner of Higher Education Richard Freeland

Moderated by WGBH’s Callie Crossley

Massachusetts faces critical shortages of college graduates and skilled workers to fill open and future positions in key industries that sustain our economy and drive our future growth. Even applicants who meet job description requirements often lack the real world skills required in today’s workplace. Importing talent from other states and nations won’t get us where we need to be.

How can we fill the Massachusetts workforce pipeline with qualified candidates? This business forum will explore the challenges we face the action that is needed, and the roles that our K-12 education system, public colleges and universities, and the business community must play.
