Upskilling Connecticut

September 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Thanks to everyone who joined our Upskilling Connecticut: Bridging the Gaps Between Educators and Employers webinar on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

Here is a video of the complete webinar:


This webinar, based on NEBHE’s recent white paper, focused on real-time labor-market data and consumer insights data from Strada Education Network to highlight successes, challenges and opportunities for upskilling in Connecticut. Additionally, a robust panel discussion illuminated effective upskilling programs in Connecticut, including those associated with Goodwin University, Trinity College and the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities. The discussion addressed questions including:

  • Who benefits most from upskilling programs in Connecticut?
  • How are successful upskilling programs built, scaled and maintained?
  • How can small- and medium-sized businesses initiate upskilling programs?
  • Who must contribute to the sustainability and advancement of upskilling?
  • How have the impacts of COVID-19 affected the upskilling landscape in Connecticut?

The panelists were:

    • Vicki Bozzuto, Director of Career and Transfer Readiness, Connecticut State Colleges and Universities System
    • Jennifer Regan-Lefebvre, Faculty Director of Innovation Initiatives for Infosys, Trinity College
    • Mark Scheinberg, President, Goodwin University
