Speakers and Panelists for 2019 State of the St. Louis Workforce Event

St. Louis Community College’s Workforce Solutions Group will present the 2019 State of the St. Louis Workforce Report 7:30-10 a.m. Wednesday, August 7, 2019 in the Mildred E. Bastian Theatre at STLCC’s Forest Park campus, 5600 Oakland Avenue.

Come join our discussion and hear about our 2019 employer survey and the latest workforce research. For the 11th anniversary of this report, the conversation looks at the assumptions and opportunities of recruiting from three historically “left behind” populations: justice-involved candidates, individuals with disabilities, and African-American men aged 18-24.

The presentation includes real-time labor market data and the results of a regional phone survey of 1,144 employers. Networking and continental breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m., and the program follows at 8 a.m.

Please join us and take part in this great event, and connect with us at STLCC.edu/STLworkforce.
