Description

CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Melanie Hoben, director of workforce development at East Hartford-based Goodwin University.

Goodwin is playing a key role leading workforce development initiatives, and is the only school in Connecticut to receive a U.S. Closing the Skills Gap Grant to upskill incumbent workers.

In addition, Hoben said Goodwin uses a 44-foot trailer as a mobile lab to introduce middle and high school students to manufacturing and provide training to manufacturers throughout Connecticut.

“This mobile lab, that we also take to the kids, we take to manufacturing facilities and have trained 1,600-2000 employees in the last four years,” said Hoben.
