The Day at the Capital with Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce invited Donna Chester Admissions and Kesha Shepherd Workforce Specialist along for this very informative and impactful.
The agenda primarily was about Workforce Development which is the biggest challenge facing the business community—the lack of skilled workers at all levels. Expansion of STEM and Healthcare State Initiatives encouraging tax credits for aerospace and automotive engineers along with employers to assist in attracting and retaining a qualified workforce. Fund Centers for State Workforce Excellence for new business and resources for them.
