Industrial Leaders Breakfast presentation includes important data about Kentucky’s workforce participation, initiatives to improve
More than 50 people representing 27 businesses turned out for our quarterly Industrial Leaders Breakfast on March 3 to hear from Ashli Watts, president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce. Ashli delivered a presentation jam-packed with great information about Kentucky’s workforce crisis and the solutions that are imperative to ensuring workforce participation increases.
Many thanks to Ashli for traveling to Somerset to share this valuable data with us, to Somerset Community College for hosting, and to everyone who participated. SPEDA’s Industrial Leaders Breakfast Series is another way we support our existing businesses and industries by bringing them together to discuss their needs and learning how we can work together to improve the local economy.
