America is in the midst of a massive labor reallocation. Employers are struggling to find qualified talent, and employees are trying to keep up with rapidly developing technologies.

The solution? Upskilling. Training our future and current workforce with the skills they need to meet these demands. Today, we talk about the steps employers are taking to give their employees stackable skills, how universities and other educational institutions are evolving beyond traditional degree pathways, and the movement of those who want to learn new skills and change career direction. 

At the table are Colleen Morrone – president and CEO of Goodwill of DE & DE County, and Dr. Darren Blackston, executive director of adult & continuing education, workforce development and training, assessment, and the connected degree program at Delaware State University.
