Governor’s Weekly Message: Making Delaware’s Case to Major Employers
DOVER – In his weekly address, the Governor talks about two new chances to make Delaware’s case in the national debateon how to get people working, make our schools even stronger and better prepare our nation for what is emerging as a global war for talent and jobs.
The Governor was asked to kick-off a national STEM Connector Town Hall Wednesday and earlier that day, he and former G-E CEO Jack Welch were asked to be the closing speakers for the The Wall Street Journal’s annual conference, called Task Force for Women in the Economy.
“On a number of the topics from supporting entrepreneurs, to improving STEM education, Delaware has a number of efforts underway,” said Governor Markell. “The chance to make our state’s case to people who keep millions working was an opportunity we could not turn down. As they build out their ideas own for new and best practices, we’ll be looking for new ways to partner, new answers to create more economic opportunity, and new approaches we can adopt right here as we keep working together to keep Delaware, moving forward.”
