Join Florida CAN for the second webinar in our series on Connecting Education and Jobs in Florida. This month’s webinar features Adrienne Johnston, Bureau Chief of Labor Market Statistics with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity and Dr. Jerry Parrish, Chief Economist and Director of Research with the Florida Chamber of Commerce Foundation for a discussion on Florida workforce trends and demands.

In last month’s webinar, Dr. Jeff Strohl from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce discussed the many types of postsecondary credentials that institutions offer, why some are worth more than others on the labor market, and why demand for higher levels of training will increase over the next decade.

On the November 8th webinar, Ms. Johnston will highlight some of the fastest growing jobs in Florida and new research on the skills gap in our state. In addition, Dr. Parrish will discuss recent research on strengthening Florida’s talent supply and education system, as well as the Florida Scorecard, the Chamber’s online tool that identifies and tracks key metrics that are important to Florida’s economy today and into the future.

Connecting Education and Jobs in Florida is a series of webinars to help education and community stakeholders learn about future workforce trends, the supply and demand of different postsecondary credentials and resources that can help students connect to high-skilled, high-paying jobs.
