Tonight’s event has been postponed. It will be rescheduled for later in the spring. Nationwide, the unemployment rate has dropped to 5 percent, but in Spokane County it remains higher than average. What will it take to lower unemployment rates even further? How can the wage gap between workers decrease in our city? Jamie Merisotis, president/CEO of Lumina Foundation, says solving this employment crisis means “tackling the talent gap.” America Needs Talent is his guide for bringing the American workforce into the next century. In conversation with Blair Taylor (chief community officer at Starbucks), he’ll explain why educated, talented, and innovative individuals are needed in the United States–and how to attract and retain them.
