MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  — Using West Virginia Forward as a lens, policy experts, corporate leaders and educational practitioners will discuss the state’s economic opportunities and challenges and the need to nurture the talent pipeline through the diversification of workforce development.

The second annual West Virginia Legislators’ Forum on Education and the Economy will be held in Charleston, with an aim to engage legislators on how best to address the current landscape of public education in West Virginia. The Nov. 2 conference is hosted by the West Virginia Public Education Collaborative and sponsored by West Virginia University, Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation and numerous community partners.
“Our legislators are on the front lines of our efforts to move West Virginia forward, so it is critical to engage them in nonpartisan discussions on how to address the most pressing issues facing public education and our economy today.” said Donna Peduto, executive director of the West Virginia Public Education Collaborative.
