9th Annual Massachusetts Jobs and Workforce Summit:
“Fast Forward: Preparing the Workforce of the Future”

This year’s theme, “Fast Forward: Preparing the Workforce of the Future” will put a spotlight on the skills needed to compete in a global economy, and how employers and policy makers can work together to meet talent needs. The Summit will highlight cutting edge education and program efforts that can play a critical role in building family sustaining wages and our local and national economies.

Now in its ninth year, the 2018 Summit will attract more than 300 key policy makers, business, labor and education leaders, to share the latest information about job creation, statewide labor and credential needs, higher education initiatives, and career pathways for young adults. In addition, we will also present the WSG Workforce Champion Awards to the Employer of the Year, Legislator of the Year and the Youth Program of the Year.
