Florida is on the path to becoming a top 10 global economy by 2030. Workforce education will propel us there — faster, farther.
The Summit in a Box toolkit is a step-by-step guide on how to host a successful convening, including how to speak about Career and Technical Education, and how to work together to solve local workforce gaps and amplify educational opportunities.
Summit in a Box is a tool powered by Future of Work Florida, an initiative founded by the Florida Department of Education, the Florida Chamber Foundation and CareerSource Florida. Future of Work Florida was created to bring together job creators, industry leaders, and education and workforce partners to showcase the careers of the future and the industries with growth potential. It emphasizes to businesses, parents and students that Florida has a dynamic, long-term plan to fuel the future.
Summit in a Box is an opportunity to engage key organizations in your community and support the development of talent pipelines in key industry areas. This toolkit will help guide you and your organization to build partnerships and amplify the importance of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs as a way to meet workforce needs in your community.
