Past, Present and Future: Labor Market Trends in Texas and the Metroplex

The economy may be undergoing significant transformation, but the best way to appreciate the future and the role workers will play is to contextualize labor market trends. This session will provide a vision of future labor market opportunities and challenges while walking down the path of how Texas has changed demographically, by industry and by occupation and how the education system must adapt to these emerging economic forces. 

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the forces driving job growth in Texas and the D/FW Metroplex
  • Understand the basis for the current labor shortage in Texas.
  • Describe the impact technology has on job creation and the demand for skills
