The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and the Nevada System of Higher Education invite you to participate in a Statewide Workforce Development Forum. We invite you to share your perspective as we discuss the critical issues in Nevada’s workforce development and our collective efforts to address them. Registration is required for this invitation-only event. We hope you will consider joining us.

The formal program will include presentations on the following areas.

  • National workforce perspectives from the Federal Reserve
  • Nevada’s workforce development needs and efforts
  • The liberal arts and workforce development
  • NSHE Workforce and Talent Development Initiative

Throughout each of these presentations we will discuss how we can focus on job transitions, job quality, and training and education programs that are necessary for our future workforce. There are numerous opportunities to collaborate throughout our workforce development system, and this forum will allow all of us to determine how we can best work together toward our collective goals. Most importantly, we will reserve time to identify and develop concrete next steps based on all of our input.
