I just wanted to give a heads up about an exciting conference that I’ll be speaking at in May of this year in Portland, Oregon. It’s the Western Pathways Conference, sponsored by the Global Pathways Institute at Arizona State University.
I went to the conference for the first time last year when it was held in Utah. I also presented a pre-conference workshop on pathways, which was packed out with over 100 participants. As exciting as that was, I found the entire event to be a very exciting gathering of doers and thinkers working in several spheres – from business and industry, to K-12 education, workforce development, and postsecondary.
I think this year’s program is going to be equally thought-provoking, and it will really expand your understanding of all the great work that is happening across the nation. Portland, Oregon is a wonderful town too, so you really might want to consider coming to the conference.
I’ll be doing another pre-conference workshop on pathways system development during the morning of the first day of the event, which is May 8th, 2019. If you are or you know people on the western side of the U.S., please make sure they know about the conference and the affordable pre-conference session I’m hosting as well.
I hope to see you there!
