Description:

The Partnership for America’s Economic Success, along with the National Association of Manufacturers, the Center for Energy Workforce Development, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce/Institute for a Competitive Workforce and the Society for Human Resource Management are hosting a networking lunch and discussion. The discussion will focus on the role of early childhood development in laying the foundation for our educational and workforce pipeline and what industry and business groups are doing to support these issues through education, outreach and advocacy.

Who Should Attend: 

  • Our workforce is our single most important asset.  We can’t compete without it.
  • We need to improve our country’s education and workforce pipeline.
  • Research clearly demonstrates that investments in early childhood produce immediate and long-term economic benefits, yet we continue to under-invest.
  • Return on investment and evidence-based approaches are essential to smart policy.

Your colleagues should attend if they are concerned about workforce skills, workforce development, education policy, national competitiveness and economic sustainability.

Please direct any questions to Rob Krupicka, program manager, Partnership for America’s Economic Success via e-mail or phone at 202.552.6373.

This is an invitation only event.
