There’s an indisputable gap between the number of skilled trade workers and the number of job openings in the construction industry. In this webinar, a panel of experts with deep industry experience on both the builder and association sides share their insights into why investments in apprenticeship and training are so important and how to put strategic programs in place to connect skill-seekers with new opportunities to work in the trades. We’ll look at:

  • Role of educators, unions, trade associations, and construction companies in making change happen
  • Why different approaches are necessary to address the skilled labor shortage and how they work together
  • How apprenticeship and training programs provide benefits across the board
  • How programs that target diversity make a positive impact on jobsites and in communities
  • How you can get more involved with the work of your local trade association and share inspiring ideas with them to connect new pools of workers to the industry
