Preparing the workforce of tomorrow is a broad, complex and ever-evolving effort. Strategic planning to ensure the long-term relevance of our education and workforce development systems depends on understanding employment dynamics and trends in regional labor markets.
This presentation on regional employment projections will highlight the new efforts of the Arizona Office of Economic Opportunity to make labor market information more understandable and more relevant at the local level. Trevor Stokes, Workforce Program Manager at OEO, will share data and analysis from the office's most recent publications, as well as examples of data-driven talent development initiatives around the state.
