Weekly Workforce Roundup: Feb. 20-Feb. 26

First, congratulations to the City of Boston and partners in Metro Boston’s application for an H1B Technical Skills Training grant.  The proposal for a regional, collaborative Skilled Careers in Life Sciences (SCILS) Initiative has been fully funded by the Dept. of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration proposal. Over the next 4 years it will enable our region to make significant investments towards achieving shared workforce objectives across our healthcare, research and biotechnology sectors.
