We will also hear from key public officials committed to workforce development initiatives, locally to nation wide.

Honorary Remarks By:

  • United States Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh
  • Massachusetts Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta

Guest Remarks By:

About the Program

This unique program is registered with the state as an apprenticeship and provides candidates an alternative pathway into the life sciences industry. MassBioEd has focused on recruiting candidates from under-represented groups in the industry as well as unemployed and under-employed individuals. Through accelerated training, apprentices will gain foundational knowledge, industry-recognized skills, and work experience, providing them with career opportunities at sustainable wages. MassBioEd chose to target Biomanufacturing Technicians and Clinical Trial Associates for the first year of the apprenticeship program because of high employer demand for these occupations.
