Workforce & Education Committee Invites you to the second of a three part series exploring workforce trends in leading sectors of the local economy. The committee will be presenting a panel discussion with industry leaders from across the region.

We will be hearing first hand from human resources and recruitment leaders on how companies are responding to the changing demands of their customers, creative ways that companies are partnering with organizations and educational institutions to effectively build their pipelines of talent, and effective ways to engage and recruit the Veteran community. We will hold a panel discussion with three distinguished guests: Sharon Palmeter, vice president of human resources and recruiting, Dovel Technologies; Mike Bruni, talent acquisition manager, Global Support Group, Leidos; and Cindy Pineda, senior human resources manager, General Dynamics IT.
