Feedback form is now closed.

Today's panel discussion features a diverse group of leaders from the regional apprenticeship programs on the critical role of apprenticeships in ensuring a more equitable workplace now and in the future. The panel will explore how industry-driven, high-quality apprenticeship opportunities help close the skills gap and create a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

The panelists will share their insights on the skills and competencies that will be in high demand in the future workplace, and how apprenticeships can help build these skills in a more equitable workforce. They will also discuss the role of technology in apprenticeships, and how it can be used to enhance the learning experience for apprentices.
