Analyzing Sector Skill Needs

May 4, 6, 13, 2021

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET

Get to know your region’s skills, credentials, and training programs.

As communities and local economies look for ways to recover from the last year, applied researchers are often asked to provide detailed examinations of the occupational and skill needs of key sectors and business groups. These sessions will lead participants through the process of analyzing the workforce needs of their region’s key economic drivers and identifying the talent supply. Workshop participants will practice synthesizing information to inform their region’s education and training efforts to create a more resilient future.
