In this invitation-only workshop, you will learn directly from those leading the charge and discover how your state can also take advantage of these opportunities. Broadband leaders from across the country will be joined by WIA’s workforce development experts to discuss not only the opportunities BEAD presents but to examine existing workforce development initiatives and redefine industry best practices. WIA will facilitate this forum for state leaders to share their current progress and workshop the challenges they face around broadband workforce development.
