ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
For over 20 years, CWA has brought together an impromptu think tank of individuals from across the broad spectrum of workforce and economic development and education to consider “outside” points of view. The intent is to draw lessons from other disciplines and from the cutting edge of business to help us create better outcomes and more impact with CTE and the public workforce system.
Hunting Genius will highlight both external innovations and disruptions that we might emulate, as well as internal developments that are moving us in unexpected and novel directions. Join us as we harness our collective genius to transform our systems and revel in the collective success we are already having.
