Podcast Episode 69 - Tackling Workforce Development from a Unique Angle With Clint Knight and Sandy Messner

In this episode, Dane talks with talks with Clint Knight and Sandy Messner.

In 2022, the Richland Area Chamber in Mansfield, Ohio set out to tackle Workforce Development from a unique angle. They'd spent years working to integrate upskilling opportunities and education in the effort, and realized that there was a gap in the process. They identified that gap - in their community - as "awareness".

The gap in their workforce development strategy:  "awareness".

They've taken on a large scale marketing strategy to attack that challenge head on. By utilizing opportunities for project based learning, multimedia content, and targeted social media strategies - they are backing the truck up, and working to make sure that stakeholders and active players are aware of the resources and opportunities that are available to them.
