Step Forward co-hosted Shreveport’s first Smart City: Workforce Analysis workshop with the City of Shreveport, and partners including the International Youth Foundation, NLEP, the Greater Shreveport Chamber, Shreveport-Bossier African American Chamber of Commerce, and the Bossier Chamber of Commerce.

During the workshop, area employers, and HR professionals gathered at the Shreveport Convention Center to discuss in-demand certifications and skills needed for entry level employees in the IT sector. Step Forward and the International Youth Foundation are gathering data from the workshop to deseminate information to Northwest Louisiana education partners.

Thank you to everyone who helped participate in the event.
