    2015 Region South Conference

    9:45am-10:15am Check-in and Continental Breakfast
    10:15am-10:25am Welcome & Introduction 
    Welcome to LaGuardia Community College: Jane E. Schulman, Vice President of Adult and Continuing Education
    Welcome from CEANY: Diane Gahagan and Jane MacKillop, Co-Chairs, CEANY Region South 


    Keynote Speaker: Stacie Evans, Literacy Advisor, Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development, focuses on education and training policy. Ms. Evans is responsible for ensuring coordination between adult literacy and workforce programs.

    Presentation Topic: “Career Pathways: One City Working Together.”

    Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a major shift in workforce development to better train New Yorkers for quality, career-track jobs in fast growing fields.  The Career Pathways report released by the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development details the administration’s 10-point plan to invest in middle-skill job training for up to 30,000 people each year, prioritize good-paying, full-time job placements at workforce agencies, and require companies doing business with the City to move New Yorkers to the front of the hiring line. Nearly one million working New Yorkers – a quarter of the entire labor force – earn less than $20,000 per year.  At the same time, employers in fast-growing, high-paying fields are confronting a shortage of skilled workers.  There is tremendous opportunity for the City, working through its robust workforce system, to equip more New Yorkers with skills for high-quality jobs that employers need to fill.  
    11:30am-11:50am Break & Fall 2015 Conference Update
