The Connecticut Data Collaborative and the Hartford Association of Business and Economics (HABE) invite you to join us for our event: It’s NOT a Race.
Connecticut CAN Prosper in the Slow Lane. CTData’s Executive Director, Michelle Riordan-Nold, will be co-presenting with Patrick Flaherty, Assistant Director of Research and Information at the Connecticut Department of Labor on October 11th at Carbone’s Ristorante from 11:30 am–1:00 pm.Connecticut’s slow population growth and increase in the average age of the population have been central topics of discussion among residents. Additionally, recent projections from the Connecticut Department of Labor show that overall job growth in Connecticut will be slower than the national average over the next 10 years.But is taking it slow always a bad thing? Not necessarily. Those same projections also show growth in high wage and high skill occupations and strength in some surprising industries. To learn more about how Connecticut can still flourish outside the fast lane, register by October 10th.
We’re excited to announce that after two years at CTData, Rachel Leventhal-Weiner has been promoted to Assistant Director. In her short tenure, she has helped grow the organization and continues to help us innovate and expand. Please help us in congratulating Rachel on her new position!
