On January 27th, panelists will explore the complex interaction of workforce development, regional competitiveness, and racial equity in the St. Louis region with a focus on two questions: 1) Does the region have the human capital it needs to compete in the world economy? 2) How can the region ensure that opportunities in the new economy are shared by all?
