Join the Inland Empire Regional Chamber of Commerce and Think Together for our inaugural Inland Empire Education and Workforce Readiness Summit. We will bring together leaders in the business, education, and nonprofit sectors. Our goal is to foster collaboration between sectors and create a dialogue on how to support our K-12 students in their preparation for future careers.

Our panel of esteemed leaders in K-12 education, business, and nonprofit sectors will discuss the state of education and students' learning loss due to the pandemic. We invite district and school leaders across the region to engage with the business and nonprofit community and discuss how to prepare kids with the necessary academic, technical, and soft skills needed to succeed in today's economy.

Dr. Angelo Farooq, Chairman of the California Workforce Development Board, will provide his perspective on future jobs for the Inland Empire and what skills students will need. Inland Empire Regional Chamber CEO Edward Ornelas will facilitate a panel discussion between K-12 Educators, County Superintendents Ted Alejandre and Edwin Gomez, Think Together CEO Randy Barth, and business leaders.
