Capital Region Workforce Summit is ONE WEEK AWAY!
The Northern Virginia Chamber, in cooperation with the Greater Washington Partnership, invites you to the Capital Region Workforce Summit – a conversation with top leaders in the business community that will address the most pressing issues affecting our region’s workforce on Wednesday, December 5 from 8:30 – 11:00 AM at the Inova Conference Center in Fairfax. Despite the critical role that human capital plays in business outcomes, it has struggled to gain and retain its seat at the executive table. Even with one of the most educated populations in the United States, firms of all sizes in the Capital Region are struggling to recruit, develop, and retain the talent they need. The featured keynote panel, moderated by Jason Miller, Chief Executive Officer, Greater Washington Partnership, includes: Alison Corazzini, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Capital One and Paul Feeko, Global and Americas Chief Talent Development Officer, Ernst & Young LLP.
