YTexas Educational CEO Luncheon & Summit

Texas’ Future - Education and Workforce Development
Description

This luncheon is for all Texas CEOs and staff to hear the Chairman of the Texas Workforce Commission discuss a high impact topic that is crucial to the future of Texas - Education and Workforce Development.


ABOUT YTEXAS

YTexas facilitates inter-regional collaboration among chief executives across the state and those entering Texas through a corporate relocation or expansion. Sponsoring organizations and their CEOs serve as ambassadors of Texas business culture by helping educate and acclimate peer CEOs who have expanded or relocated their businesses into the region.

YTexas.com provides a national showcase for these CEOs who are making an impact in Texas - and their iconic brands.

This topic is relevant to YTexas because it addresses the #1 reason why companies are moving to Texas - Jobs and a skilled workforce. However, with the large number of companies moving here, demand will outgrow the number of skilled workers. The oil & gas industry is already seeing this. Companies need to be aware of this….and help solve the problem.

Within the next decade (or even sooner), the skills gap is projected to widen. So, a collaborative effort from the state government, schools and industry is needed.

KEYNOTE

Chairman Andres Alcantar of the Texas Workforce Commission will be addressing STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) and its impact on the future workforce of Texas.

E3 ALLIANCE

YTEXAS will contribute 10% of the event proceeds to an Austin based non-profit called E3 Alliance in support of a pilot program that connects education, curriculum and industry to give students exposure to future job opportunities in a wide array of industries. This pilot is the first of its kind nationally and powered by two Texas companies, SureScore and Nepris, with a focus on STEM students and careers.
