2013 Sectors Summit: The Next Generation

The Sectors Summit: The Next Generation, hosted by CWDC, will take regional sector partnerships to the next level by leveraging the statewide Key Industry Networks to expand industry-based work throughout Colorado in an intensive two (2) day work session.

The work session will:

  • Broaden and deepen new and mature regional sector partnerships,
  • Align regional sector partnerships within the framework established via statewide Key Industry Networks,
  • Launch the implementation phase of Key Industry Core Objective V- Educate and Train the Workforce of the Future

Facilitated work sessions will provide regional partnerships with tips and tools to:

  • Identify opportunities for developing new and expanding existing regional clusters of industry activity, and partnerships to better support that activity;
  • Develop concrete, coordinated regional plans for targeted industries that build on regional industry bases, and align related efforts within regions toward greater collective impact;
  • Provide usable tools such as  “do-it yourself cluster maps” and a benchmarking tool.
