Thomas Stith Panel – Seeking a New Labor Market Equilibrium: A Leadership Perspective

Part of our series on Workforce Disrupted

Please join us for “Seeking a New Labor Market Equilibrium: A Leadership Perspective,” a panel moderated by Kenan Institute Distinguished Fellow Thomas Stith, CEO of The Michael Thomas Group Inc. and former president of the North Carolina Community College System.

The hourlong event will take place at 12:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday, Aug. 23, in Kenan Center Room 204.

Now more than ever, the global economy requires an innovative approach to preparing our workforce, and the members of our distinguished panel will outline how they are meeting this challenge. Leaders from higher education, business and the N.C. General Assembly will discuss their strategies to build a sustainable workforce pipeline in North Carolina.

Stith is a member of the 2023 class of Kenan Institute Distinguished Fellows. Together they comprise an exemplary set of global scholars committed to leveraging their individual expertise, thought leadership, research and networks to further the institute’s efforts to examine and drive solutions to issues facing business and the economy today. This year’s class will support the institute’s 2023 grand challenge: Workforce Disrupted: Seeking the Labor Market’s Next Equilibrium.

The panel is free and open to the public but registration is required, as lunch will be provided for all attendees.
