We will con­duct a com­pre­hen­sive analy­sis of the city’s abil­ity to meet the work­force needs expected to arise over the next decade in the bioin­no­va­tion and health ser­vices indus­try. The work­force analy­sis is being funded with part of a $300,000 grant from the W.K. Kel­logg Foun­da­tion (WKKF). Results of the study will be used to design solu­tions to iden­ti­fied gaps in the work­force pipeline and bar­ri­ers to local hir­ing and advance­ment within anchor health­care insti­tu­tions and bioin­no­va­tion companies.
