News from Wyoming...

The State of Wyoming has begun its Next Gen journey!  Beginning in March 2018, nine regions assembled teams of workforce development, economic development, education, and business leaders to attend the State's first-ever Next Gen Sector Partnership Academy.  Each team analyzed their region's industry job data and chose a first sector for launching a Next Gen partnership.  The State's economic development agency sponsored the filming of the proceedings, which culminated in an endorsement from the Governor.  Each region is committed to launching a Next Gen Sector Partnership by the end of 2018.  Check out more of the Wyoming Business Council's videos, including a related speech from the Governor and a full Sector Partnership Industry Champion session.
