Wisconsin tech colleges and WMC address skills gap

Blog categories


We’re listening and we’re taking action. That’s the message of the “Working Wisconsin Listening Sessions” taking place at Wisconsin’s technical colleges.

Beginning May 16 each college will host a 90-minute event with Jim Morgan, president of the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC) Foundation. Morgan will share the results of 50+ listening sessions with more than 300 manufacturing representatives. He’ll also outline what WMC plans to do to solve the workforce shortage.

College representatives will also speak about what they are doing to educate skilled workers who will fill the many job vacancies in manufacturing. Throughout the state technical colleges are adding new programs, adjusting current curriculum and expanding course offerings in response to the need for more skilled workers.

Contact your local technical college to find out how you can attend the listening session in your area. Reservations are required, however, there is no charge to attend a session.
