Governor's Economic & Education Summit 2016

As part of Governor Snyder’s mission to make Michigan the #1 state for talent in the nation, The Governor’s Economic Summit and the Governor’s Education SummitTM are once again bringing you a joint summit to spur creativity and collective action!  At GES2, we hope to encourage collaboration between the education and business communities to attract, retain and develop Michigan’s talent for more and better jobs.

Improving talent development means helping educators understand the needs of job providers, providing businesses the opportunity to craft future talent, and preparing job-seekers for in-demand careers. The GES2 summit brings together educators, business leaders and workforce professionals from across Michigan for presentations, featured speakers, and productive discussion. By bringing together leaders from different sectors and geographies, we can expand the state’s ability to compete in the knowledge-based economy of the future.

* Featuring keynote speaker Jaime Casap, Chief Education Evangelist at Google
