8:35 AM Closing the Technical Workforce Gap – The Role of Academic, Government, and Business Collaboration in STEM Education Assistant Secretary Jane Oates, United State Department of Labor in the Employment & Training Administration

The Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is the federal agency charged with supporting the efficient functioning of the U.S. labor market by providing job training, employment, labor market information, and income support for workers who have lost their jobs. Millions of employees have been dislocated from their jobs in traditional industries and need new skills to compete for jobs in the labor market. Now more than ever, there is fierce global competition for an educated workforce. To address these economic dynamics, the ETA is strengthening partnerships across federal agencies, developing clear career pathways that lead to attainment of industry-recognized credentials, developing better virtual career tools, and investing in “earn and learn” training strategies.
