Growing Nebraska’s talent pool is critical. To compete for talent, it will take all of us working together. Learn more about the challenges we face in this video, as well as how Aksarben is convening leaders from business, governmental organizations and the education sector to address it.
Each year Aksarben hosts a meeting bringing together statewide leadership across all industries and regions of both the public and private sectors to hear about challenges facing Nebraska from industry experts and data scientists.
By defining the challenges and how they’re evolving,
we are better able to deploy effective strategies to support solutions, together.
