Learn more about encouraging students to explore area businesses in an Inspire Southeast initiative Wednesday, March 1, from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in Room South 114 at Gateway Technical College, 400 Highway H, Elkhorn.

The initiative will be lead by the Walworth County Economic Development Alliance, in partnership with Milwaukee 7.

Inspire is a web-based program that interfaces with Career Cruising, which is being used by many of the K-12 school districts within Walworth County. Inspire aims to connect local businesses with students, educators, and parents in to establish a future workforce pipeline. Increased interactions between the business community and the education system also helps better align the skills that are needed in the marketplace.

Presenters will include Steve Yaun, Inspire/Career Cruising; Susan Koehne, Milwaukee 7/ Inspire Southeast; Karin Smith, Milwaukee 7/ Inspire Southeast / Cesa #1; and Derek D'Auria, WCEDA.

The program will include an overview of Inspire capabilities, information on the Inspire Southeast Program, a Walworth County roll out, and time for questions and answers.

There is no cost, but reservations are required. To register, visit the website. For more information, contact info@walworthbusiness.com or call 741-8527
