Solving the Semiconductor Workforce Crunch
This event will be livestreamed from this webpage.
Please join CSIS Renewing American Innovation on September 28 from 3:00pm-5:00pm EDT for a workshop on strategies to address the emerging shortage of skilled workers in the semiconductor industry.
With chip fabrication facilities under construction across the United States, semiconductor and other high technology firms face acute challenges in finding enough skilled technical workers in the near term. The workshop will explore how partnerships among educational organizations, industry, and government can align jobseeker qualifications, academic curriculums, and in-demand skills from industry in real-time.
This event is made possible by the generous support from Qualcomm.
