10th Annual Greater Kansas City
Workforce and Education Summit
Reflecting on the Past and
Defining Our Vision for the Future of Work
Thursday, Dec. 3, 2020
7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the labor market and rapidly accelerated the use of technology for education and training purposes, undoubtedly shifting the way we will work and learn forever. It has also shined a spotlight on systemic racism and persistent disparities that must be addressed in order to achieve true regional prosperity.
Join us as we reflect on the past decade of education and workforce investments and initiatives to help us define our priorities and vision for creating an ecosystem where all learners excel, regardless of age, race, gender or economic status.
