HELENA- As part of its series on career awareness for Montana youth, the Montana Chamber of Commerce is hosting Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen for a webinar focused on Career and Technical Education. The webinar will take place through Zoom on Thursday, October 22nd, at 2:30 pm.
"The Montana business community understands the importance of reaching our future workers earlier in their education. By connecting business leaders with students and allowing them to share their professional journeys, we are actively creating awareness of career pathways," said Todd O'Hair, CEO and President of the Montana Chamber of Commerce.
Superintendent Arntzen added, "Career and Technical Education is critical to the future success of Montana students and our state's economy. I am proud of the business and industry partnerships that have been created with the OPI to expand opportunities for students to graduate college and career ready. We must continue building on these partnerships to ensure that all students are Montana Ready."
To support career awareness for high school students, the Chamber is connecting business leaders from across the state virtually with CTE educators and students. These career awareness webinars support career pathway objectives by facilitating mentorship through story-telling directly to Montana's future leaders. In the spring, business leaders shared stories from their personal and professional lives, highlighted key decision points and anecdotes. Previous webinars can be viewed on the Chamber’s YouTube channel.
