MADISON – The Governor's Task Force on Workforce and Artificial Intelligence will take its next step forward when its subcommittees focusing on Industries, Occupations, and Skills, and Equity and Economic Opportunity hold virtual public meetings on Nov. 20.
Interested members of the public may obtain links to attend the meetings by registering via Eventbrite.
To assist the task force in its work, interested members of the public are also invited to participate in a brief SurveyMonkey survey.
The Equity and Economic Opportunity Subcommittee is exploring existing programs designed to connect underutilized talent pools with in-demand skills, identify gaps, and propose solutions that lead to career advancement and a thriving economy through the AI transformation. The upcoming subcommittee meeting will explore initial research findings, discuss recent successes in connecting employers with underutilized talent, and begin identifying how the rise of AI technologies may require adaptation in training and program resources.
The Industries, Occupations, and Skills Subcommittee is working to identify the industries, occupations, and functional skillsets most likely to benefit or experience disruption from AI. Based on this understanding, and a review of existing training and other programs, the group aims to identify opportunities to advance workers, employers, job seekers, and a thriving Wisconsin economy. The upcoming subcommittee meeting will explore initial research findings as well as an overview of existing programs and training opportunities in these fields.
The Governor's Task Force on Workforce and Artificial Intelligence is bringing together leaders from business, agriculture, education, technology, labor, workforce development, and government to identify policies and investments that will advance Wisconsin workers, employers, and job seekers through this technological transformation. The task force is chaired by the secretary of the Department of Workforce Development or a designee with additional leadership from the secretary of the Department of Administration or a designee and the secretary of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. or a designee.
