Bridging the Gap for Employers,  Educators, and Communities

Governor's Education & Talent Summit

Suburban Showplace
March 12-13, 2018
Novi, MI

The talent gap is the biggest threat to sustaining the economic progress Michigan has made during the last six years. Join us to discover new ways for the business community to connect with educators and community leaders so we all can work together to ensure our state’s bright future continues to shine.


About the Summit

It’s vitally important for Michigan students to graduate with in-demand skills. Businesses need a talented workforce so they can grow and thrive, creating more and better jobs. That’s why it is important for industry to collaborate more closely with K-12 districts and higher education. Students need hands-on training using state-of-the-art equipment so they are ready to step into the workforce. The Governor’s Education & Talent Summit is an opportunity to start those relationships, exploring opportunities that will make Michigan stronger now and in the years to come.
