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 Massachusetts. Additionally, a robust panel discussion illuminated effective upskilling programs in Massachusetts, namely those associated with Quinsigamond Community College and the Commonwealth Corporation.

This presentation sought to address these questions:

  • Who benefits most from upskilling programs in Massachusetts?
  • 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 the COVID-19 pandemic affected the upskilling landscape in Massachusetts?
