Over 100,000 Utahns awoke this morning ready to work but had no job to go to. Ironically, in a time of high unemployment, many Utah businesses have jobs they cannot fill simply because workers with the right education and skills are not available.
 
Education plays a critical role in our recovery from the longest, widest and deepest recession since the Great Depression and it is the key to long-term prosperity.
 
Please join us as we welcome Cheryl Oldham, vice president and executive director of the Institute for a Competitive Workforce, U.S. Chamber of Commerce . She will provide a national perspective on the impact education has on the economy. Oldham will then join a panel of local business leaders who have faced challenges finding top-level talent and growing their organizations.

This event will be held at the Salt Lake Chamber, 175 East University Blvd (400 South) Suite 600, Salt Lake City, Utah.
