Clark Hill PLC
Topic: This is Session Three of the Three-Session Series: “Trends That Are Driving Change In The Legal Profession”
Speaker: Presented by Linda M. Topoleski, Vice President for Workforce Operations and Programs at the Allegheny Conference on Community Development
Over the next decade the workforce in the Pittsburgh Region will be characterized by large scale retirements, slow population growth and a substantial workforce shortfall. Rapid shifts in the skills required by technological innovation will also provide challenges for employers.
The Allegheny Conference on Community Development undertook the project of documenting these workforce challenges and reporting their findings to the region’s public and private sectors in their “Inflection Point” report. The report issued in 2016 and subsequently updated in 2017-2018 was intended to put the region on notice, initiate conversation and spur action that would help us deal with the workforce challenges and provide for a globally competitive workforce.
Our speaker will address the report’s findings and discuss collaborative efforts needed by employers, educators, civic leaders and concerned citizens to confront and solve these challenges.
