Workforce Development in Camden
I am writing to invite you to participate in next Collective Impact Conversation, which will focus on workforce development. This conversation will take place next Tuesday, March 13 from 12:00–2:00 PM in the South BC conference room in the Rutgers University–Camden Campus Center. The purpose of our Collective Impact Conversations series is to convene a group of diverse stakeholders around a specific issue area each month to identify strategies by which we can continue to create positive change in our city. Rutgers University-Camden will use the feedback and ideas generated through these conversations to shape our own strategic vision for civic engagement in 2018-19, as well as the development of a campus-wide civic action plan. At the bottom of this email, you can find a list of all of our Collective Impact Conversation topics for the year.
In preparing your thoughts for our conversation on workforce development, I encourage you to reflect on the following questions:
- What factors are presently contributing to or detracting from workforce development in the city of Camden?
- How is workforce development experienced by residents, neighborhoods, local businesses, and community/non-profit organizations?
- What is presently being done to drive workforce development in our community?
- What challenges currently exist regarding workforce development in Camden, and what steps could be taken to address those challenges?
- What actions could be taken to enhance workforce development in our city?
- What systems could be developed to improve coordination and collaboration regarding workforce development in Camden?
If you would like to join us for our Collective Impact Conversation on workforce development, please take a moment to register here. Our Collective Impact Conversations are open to the community at large, and we would encourage you to invite anyone who you think might be interested to participate. If you have any questions about this event, or about our Collective Impact Conversations in general, please feel free to contact me.
I sincerely hope that you will join us for both this and future Collective Impact Conversations, and I look forward to continuing to work with you to create and sustain positive transformation in our city.
