Free Webinar – Building Economic Independence – Soft Skill Development
September 15, 2016 2:30 pm
August 10, 2016

As a region’s economic landscape shifts, workers change industries and new workers enter the workforce. Though the demand for workers with specific skills transforms, one thing that remains consistent is the demand for soft skills. Dislocated workers, individuals with disabilities, former inmates, adults who haven’t held a job before and many others may need to develop soft skills to meet the expectations of today’s employers. As economic developers, ensuring the workforce is adequate in supply and quality is important to meeting employers’ needs and maintaining the tax base. Sign-up today to learn how you can help your community members strengthen their soft skills to join or re-enter the workforce.

Attend this webinar to learn:

• About successful soft-skill programs and what made them succeed
• How you can help nontraditional and traditional workers improve their soft skills
• How to work with your businesses to identify the soft skills needed


  • Leslie Parks, Principal, Leslie Parks Consulting
  • A second speaker will be announced shortly
