Vision 2030 identified a communication gap between industry and the education system. That is, those employing the future workforce were not communicating those creating the future workforce. To no fault of either sector, there existed no forum in which educators and industry could connect. The Educator | Industry Institute (E|II) set out to create such a forum.
E|II was piloted in July 2012. It was designed as an eight day seminar to which each day focused on a different industry sector. Educators spent the mornings in a seminar type setting receiving an overview of the industry and spent the afternoons on-site at an industry setting touring and connecting with industry professionals. Educators received a $500 stipend for completing the Institute.
