The votes are in!

 ·         Kickoff meeting summary: We had a robust conversation at our February 2019 kickoff meeting about three indicators (8% of Florida’s population has an industry credential, 67% of Florida jobs will require a postsecondary credential by 2030 and reducing equity gaps would grow the Florida economy by $157 billon). … But we ran out of time to apply our table findings to the larger group.

·         During our March meeting, we will share out table work from our kickoff project meeting and begin to design what our local project will target now, next and later.

·         HOMEWORK No. 1: The Talent Hub cities model is a good framework for designing what our Escambia County “on-ramps to good jobs” project will look like.
