Workforce Development Summit

Our 2022 Workforce Development Summit “Crea, Conecta, Cambia” — Create Pipelines, Connect People, Change Practices: Investing in the Latinx Workforce took place November 2-4 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We believe it was a good time to hold this national event in Puerto Rico in light of the economic challenges facing the island, the negative impact that Hurricane Fiona had on the economy, and to show the importance of increasing opportunities for local workers.
