St. Louis Public Library - Central Library Auditorium
1301 Olive Street, St. Louis
Wednesday, January 27, 2016 6:30-8 p.m.

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?

Two recent publications will be used to provide context for the discussion ~ Where We Stand: The Strategic Assessment of the St. Louis Region will show how St. Louis compares to other regions and Ruth Sergenian will discuss her recent essay from the latest edition of St. Louis Currents on the St. Louis economy after the Great Recession.

Presenters and Panelists include:
William Tate, Washington University
Brenda Mahr, Employment Connection 
Ruth Sergenian, St. Louis Regional Chamber
John Posey, East-West Gateway
