COUNCIL’S WORKFORCE COMMITTEE CO-CHAIR ATTENDS WHITE HOUSE SUMMIT
The Bay Area Council’s focus on building the Workforce of the Future got a strong boost today (April 24) when Executive Committee member and Deloitte West Region Vice Chair Teresa Briggs participated in the White House UpSkill Summit. Briggs co-chairs the Council’s Workforce of the Future Committee with fellow Executive Committee member and Shorenstein Properties President Glenn Shannon. Briggs was joining 150 other top employers, labor leaders, foundations, non-profits, educators and tech innovators from across America who are answering the President’s call to action “to help workers of all ages earn a shot at better, higher-paying jobs, even if they don’t have a higher education.” The Summit showcased best practices and the commitments many employers make by providing programs that upskill their workforce so that more will move up the career path. The Bay Area Council is a member of UpSkill America and applauds our member companies’ upskilling programs.
