Ward featured in discussion on developing state workforce

University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Interim Chancellor David Ward will be one of two experts discussing the changing Wisconsin economy and the UW System’s role in developing workforce talent at a public lecture on campus on Thursday, Sept. 11.

“Wisconsin in the World: Growing Global Talent” will feature Ward and Gilles Bousquet, dean of the Division of International Studies at UW-Madison.

The discussion is an extension of UW-Madison’s Global Hot Spots lecture series.

It will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on the UW-Green Bay campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive.

Ward, president of NorthStar Economics, Inc., a Madison-based private economic consulting and research firm, will discuss the implications of global economic changes for Wisconsin’s workforce and economic development.

Bousquet is regarded nationally and internationally as a leading innovator in international interdisciplinary education. He will discuss how Wisconsin businesses and organizations can attract the talent needed to remain competitive in a global marketplace.

A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation, and refreshments will be provided.
