About the Webconference
As technology reshapes industries and the economy prepares for a mass retirement of Baby Boomers, anticipating the training deficits of the future—not just responding to current employer needs—is crucial to sustaining enrollments. In this series, we explore the technological, economic, and demographic trends shaping the next decade’s workforce, highlighting blossoming industries that allow community colleges to reach new student populations and plant a flag early in emerging hot fields and disciplines.
This fall, we'll be re-hosting the highlights from our spring 2014 webconference series. With 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day, virtually every industry faces pressure to better serve older adults. This first webconference in the Industry Futures Series explores how best-in-class aging services programs have repositioned traditional gerontology content to appeal to encore career seekers in fields as diverse as allied health, business, and design.
