Mary Vickers Koch, dean of the CPCC Harris Campus and dean of Business and Industry Learning at CPCC, participated in the U.S. Conference of Mayors 2012 Fall Leadership Meeting with Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx; Pam Howze, technical training manager for Siemens Energy; and Steve Partridge, CEO of Charlotte Works; on Sept. 24 in Dallas.

The Charlotte team contributed their insight to the conference’s working session, “Best Practices in Workforce Development.” The presentation discussed how government and the private sector are transforming the workforce development system to ensure that residents have meaningful access to training and other services to help them secure jobs.

CPCC was invited to join the conversation given the College’s history of creating innovative training programs that meet the needs of today's working professionals, creating a stronger, more robust workforce.
