The Greater Keene and Peterborough Chamber, in partnership with Southwest Region Planning Commission, is organizing a multipart series dedicated to Workforce Issues.
Partnerships Between Higher Ed & Regional Employers
The Monadnock Region, like much of the nation, is grappling with a workforce shortage—an issue heightened by the pandemic but that existed long beforehand. It’s going to take creativity and regional collaboration to address this complex challenge.
The Greater Keene and Peterborough Chamber, in partnership with Southwest Region Planning Commission, has organized a series to explore various aspects of workforce development in our region including successful models, remaining gaps, and paths forward.
The first session, held in November, focused on career pathways for K-12 and community college students. The second installment of the series, scheduled for January 12th from 8:00 – 9:15 a.m., will examine partnerships between four-year institutions of higher education and regional employers. Event panelists will include:
Dr. Melinda Treadwell, President, Keene State College
Dr. Paul Bocko, Faculty and Integrated Learning Program Internship Coordinator, Antioch University New England
Ann Goodrich-Bazan, Assistant Director of Career Services, Franklin Pierce University
Tony Cavaliere, Superintendent of Utilities, Town of Jaffrey
Heather Bell, Vice President, Electronic Imaging Materials Inc.
Mark Fryberger, Vice President of Finance, C&S Wholesale Grocers
Kristin Brooks, Internship Coordinator, Keene State College
