Leveraging Michigan's talent for transformation through job creation and workforce development

Michigan has lost nearly 1 million jobs in the last decade. Yet Michigan can boast some of the most skilled workers in the country.
Can Michigan leverage its talent base to attract more businesses? How can the companies already here continue to hire and grow?
This conference will:
* Raise visibility and access to job creation resources and build collaborations of these resources
* Foster just-in-time alignment between job availability and job retraining resources
* Demonstrate management/labor success stories
