  • New London (3/5/20)
  • New Haven (3/13/20, weather-related postponement from 2/6/20)

Each stop will serve as a forum for stakeholders from business, education (secondary and postsecondary), government and the community to explore collaborations that prepare students for college and career in ways that increase workforce readiness across the state

Breakfast will be provided together with a panel-led discussion focused on statewide issues as they impact the regional level. The CT State Department of Education and the CT Department of Labor are contributing to production of this series.
