How Metropolitan Labor Market Needs Vary Across the Country (National Academies of Science)

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) hosted a virtual workshop series titled “Meeting Regional STEMM Workforce Needs in the Wake of COVID-19.” The COVID-19 pandemic is transforming the global economy and STEMM workforce demands have changed as a result of the pandemic. During this event, industry, higher education, and local government leaders, as well as subject matter experts, discussed the impact that COVID-19 has had on the Boston metropolitan economy and the practices and policies that local higher education institutions and workforce training organizations have adopted to respond to local STEMM workforce needs. In addition, the workshop explored additional actions that educational institutions, employers, training organizations, and policy makers at the local, state, and federal levels could consider to address the changing workforce needs.

In this panel, Michelle is joined by Lee Wellington, Jen Faigel, Sonia Moin, and Cecilia Wessinger to discuss the role of entrepreneurship and new learning pathways in the face of COVID-19.
