Upcoming Webinars on Ohio Coal Economy Reemployment Options
Please join Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs for its second webinar on reemploying workers displaced by changes in the coal economy. The webinars are supported by a U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) investment in an ‘Appalachian Ohio Skillshed Analysis’ project to map the occupational skills of displaced coal economy workers to emerging employment opportunities.
- Webinar #2: Closing the Skills Gap for Coal Mine Workers
June 28, 2018: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM U.S. Eastern Time
This webinar will focus more broadly on trends in Ohio and Appalachia’s coal economy, as well as the occupational skills of workers in the coal mining industry. The webinar will then examine the training needs of these workers as they shift to emerging occupations, and the implications of the wage gap that exists between higher-paying coal mining jobs and lower-paying transition positions.
The webinar is open to the public and free to attend.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email including information about how to join the webinars.
