Money Talks: Workforce Wednesdays

Workforce Wednesdays is a program from the Education Department of MPB. Dr. Tara Wren, Director of Education and Jasmine Harvey, Student Engagement Specialist are with us today to explain the initiative and let us know how anyone in Mississippi can participate.

Participants in Workforce Wednesday get information about workforce development including mentoring programs, apprenticeships, work-based learning and soft skills. With the pandemic these networking get togethers are virtual so anyone can participate.

Workforce Wednesday occurs every third Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. It’s a service of the Education Department of Mississippi Public Broadcasting.
