As states continue their recovery efforts from the economic downturn brought on by the pandemic, many of them are taking the opportunity to reskill and upskill their workforce. This webinar will feature representatives from the states of Arizona and New Jersey that participated in the National Governors Association's Reskilling and Recovery Network.


Description

The Reskilling and Recovery Network brought together state and community college leaders with workforce and industry partners to collaboratively identify and scale strategies that give workers the skills necessary to succeed in an economy reshaped by the pandemic. These leaders will share with other peers how they have addressed current challenges and taken strategic approaches toward future economic growth.
