About the Workforce Development Summit
The third annual edition of LBC2 will include a Workforce Summit for parents, industry partners, guidance counselors, educators, friends and family of competitors. The summit is inspired by the Governor’s Workforce Development Board (GWDB) and aspires to highlight the private and public sector’s need in all types of businesses for future employees capable of defending against complicated cyber threats. In order to fulfill these needs, the development of student’s hard and soft skills must occur through internships and apprenticeships. The Workforce Summit hopes to build a better relationship between students, educators, and employers to provide students the skills to make a positive impact in future. Many of the summit sessions will be run by current students.
