Durable Skills Feedback Workshops have begun!

In partnership with CompTIA and Common Group, we are creating a rubric that will assist in supporting the development of Durable Skills. As we continue to work towards finalizing this rubric, we invite you to give us feedback and commentary at local and virtual convenings across the country.

These feedback events include business leaders and other key stakeholders. We hope you’ll consider joining us for one of our virtual sessions on April 6 or April 10, or at an in-person session near you.
