ACT Workforce Summit

October 28, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 30, 2019 @ 11:30 am

ACT Workforce Summit 2019

Workforce Development is not a one-size-fits-all industry. This is why the ACT Workforce Summit is so great and beneficial. The ACT Workforce Summit is an annual event that brings together different stakeholders involved in workforce development to connect and share different perspectives to help gain insight that will help improve their communities.

Of course GPSEd will be attending to share our insight on the future workforce and work-based learning. On October 29th at 9 am – 10:15 am our very own CEO/President Stephanie Borowski will be one of five presenters for ACT’s first ever FRED Talks. FRED Talks is ACT’s version of a TED Talk where summit attendees get to share all the exciting things their organizations are doing, which includes GPSEd!

If you can’t make it to the FRED Talk, don’t worry there will be ACT FRED Talk Breakout Sessions. Our Chief of Innovation Officer, Andy Hepburn will be co-presenting with Ray Girdler from Arkansas Department of Education at 11:40 pm – 12:30 pm to talk about Evaluating High School Workforce Development Programs through Research Partnerships.

On October 30th Andy Hepburn will be co-presenting at another breakout session at 9:45 am – 10:30 am with Cindy Hill from ACT to discuss Work-based Learning Models for Youth that Leverage Certifications and Apprenticeships.
