     How Skills Data is Helping Jobseekers



    Wednesday, September 22, 2021
    12:30-1:30 p.m. ET

    By using skills data, communities can help people get back to work and guide them into in-demand jobs. In this webinar, we’ll dive into the report, From Likely to Aligned, and take a look at likely transitions currently being made by workers, and how skills data reveals potential aligned transitions. We'll also look at our new skills-based jobseeker tool.

    Presenters:
    Courtney Moreno, Emsi
    Levi Szymanowski,

     Future ED Trends:  Positioning Your Community for Future Resiliency, Diversification and Growth



    Thursday, October 28, 2021
    12:30-1:30 p.m. ET

    The pandemic caused not only a significant global economic disruption, but also accelerated workforce, employer and social trends. As the world continues to return to a “new normal” and recovery is on the horizon, EDOs are wondering what exactly does the future look like. While we do not have a crystal ball, Ady Advantage has been conducting research on trends and disruptions that will have a lasting impact on economic development and the implications for economic developers. In this webinar, we will highlight trends and implications, such as work from home, automation, industry winners and losers, global supply chains and more.

    In this session, you will learn:

    • Which trends have staying power and will continue to impact economic development
    • How these trends are impacting industries, occupations, real estate, etc.
    • What community and economic development leaders can to do best position their community for future resiliency, diversification and growth
