Speaking Engagement

Faulkner to Attend Retail Opportunity Network Convening

November 7, 2018

This week, Laura Faulkner will travel to Des Moines, Iowa to participate in the Hope Street Group (HSG) Retail Opportunity Network (RON), hosted by Central Iowa Works and the National Fund for Workforce Solutions. This year’s focus—From Preparation to Practice: Transformation of the Retail Ecosystem—will bring together more than 100 professionals in retail and workforce development on how to build longterm career pathways for incumbent workers and better align employer demand with supply.

On November 8, Faulkner will participate in a session where she will lead a facilitated discussion with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation around what an effective and recognized system of assessments and credentials/signals would look like and how retail professionals can align their work to bring this system to fruition.
