Summit Promotes Skilled Workforce

The Ohio Department of Education will host the Ohio Economic-Education Summit on February 26-27 at the Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square. Participants will address the need to create a more highly skilled and educated workforce, particularly in high-tech and science-based industries.

According to recent reports, Ohio has more than 86,000 unfilled jobs because candidates do not have necessary training and skills. The Economic-Education Summit will bring together teachers, industry leaders and state agency staff from nine industry sectors to address solutions that will drive economic growth in the state.

Among the presenters, PolymerOhio will offer that will allow attendees to:

  • Learn the importance of preparing today’s secondary students for tomorrow’s careers by examining the needs of today’s polymer industry
  • Gain insight to the innovative polymer-based curriculum being used in adult education at Auburn and Ashland-W. Holmes County Career Center
  • Participate in an interactive session developing partnerships between the polymer industry and Ohio’s workforce development programs

Registration for the event is $135 and closes on February 20th.
