We would like to invite you to attend a special John LaWare Leadership forum on Friday, Nov. 18, at the Boston Federal Reserve Bank that will feature the release of an important new report on the status of Massachusetts’ community colleges and the role they play in meeting the workforce needs of the Commonwealth. A highlight of this forum will be a keynote speech by Dr. Glen DuBois, Chancellor of Virginia’s Community College system and a renowned expert in creating the kind of alignment that is required between institutions of public higher education and the economic needs of the Knowledge Economy.

Founded in 2005, the John LaWare Leadership Forum is a flexible civic mechanism that informs and convenes Greater Boston’s business and civic leaders to respond to the region’s competitiveness challenges and opportunities. We feel that there could be no more significant issue at the forefront of business and education right now than developing and strengthening our state’s community colleges so that they help fill the growing jobs mismatch that currently exists in Massachusetts.

Chancellor DuBois has led the 23-community college system in Virginia through significant strategic change during a period that included unprecedented enrollment growth and unprecedented cuts in state operating funds, while succeeding in improving the outcomes of the system and attaining better alignment with his state’s workforce needs.

In addition, a panel of local experts from higher education, business, workforce and public sectors will respond to Chancellor DuBois’ comments and the findings and recommendations contained in the Boston Foundation report, followed by an open conversation about what we can all do to achieve better alignment and continue to contribute to the Commonwealth’s future economic competitiveness.
