Event Description:
In partnership with the Tigard Tualatin School District and the Tigard Chamber of Commerce, we have launched #WorkReady because a skilled, educated, and qualified workforce is fundamental to a strong economy. Community Business Leaders have an intersecting vision for invigorating the local economy, improving graduation rates, and creating a well-trained workforce. If you are committed to engaging, cultivating and developing a local pool of skilled, qualified and career-ready talent, you are in good company, and #WorkReady programs have your goals in mind.
