Future Skills

The Baker-Polito Administration, including MassHire Career Centers and Workforce Boards and the Commonwealth Corporation, is hosting a series of 10 regional employer roadshows from late April to May, with the goal of connecting employers to new and existing workforce support from the Commonwealth.

The goal of the roadshows is to help connect employers to new and existing workforce supports from the Commonwealth. The roadshows will be a unique opportunity to hear from MA workforce leaders and to share your perspective with them. Attendance will vary by event but VIP guests may include Lieutenant Governor Polito, Secretary Acosta, and Secretary Kennealy, among others.

There will be 10 events across the state from late April through May. The roadshows will be hosted by our workforce partners, including community colleges and vocational training institutes. Each event will be ~1.5 hours and will have roughly the same agenda.
