Orlando, FL - On March 13, 2018 the Central Florida College Access Network in partnership with the Higher Education Coordinating Council will host a convening focused on adult learners and the benefits of education for employers, employees, and our community. The Keynote speaker will be Mr. Carl Camden, Former President/CEO, Kelly Services, Inc. This event is free, and reservations are encouraged. Visit the Central Florida College Access Network website to reserve your space.

Although 65% of all jobs in the nation will require at least some postsecondary education by 2020, only 42% of adults will have an associate’s degree or higher (Helios Education Foundation). Our distinguished panelists will provide insight into Central Florida workforce challenges and gaps and offer solutions on how best to meet those needs through educational support.
