Aligning Expectations: Life Sciences Workforce Development (Forum in Lexington)
Wednesday, February 26 2014
3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Location: Shire Human Genetic Therapies, Shire Way, Lexington MA
You are invited to attend one of two regional meetings to meet community college faculty, learn about their biotechnology programs, and share your corporate perspectives and expectations.
MassBioEd and the Transformation Agenda will host two regional industry forums to bring together representatives from MA life sciences companies, community colleges and staffing agencies to review "Industry Entry Level Demand Report: Data for Biotechnology & Related Industries" report, prepared by MassBioEd. The report explores:
* Local industry demand data
* Recommended core competencies
* What jobs are attainable with an Associates Degree or less?
* What are the preferred skills and knowledge for these jobs?
* What gaps exist?
Most importantly, this forum provides an opportunity to discuss alignment and enhance working relationships between colleges and industry.
