  • The world of work is at an inflection point, as the Industrial Age gives way to the Digital Age. Organizational leadership must anticipate and respond to the demographic, technological and economic drivers of change in systems that provide human capital. For those charged with educating and training the workers of both today and tomorrow, redesigning for the future while simultaneously maintaining current systems will be difficult. The transition will be one of our greatest as community and technical colleges shift to the Second Curve. Pima Community College leadership will describe why and how Pima leadership and area businesses collaborated on micropathways (branded as PimaFastTrack), which provides adult learners with fast, low-cost, non-credit, skills-based training and industry-recognized credentials leading to careers that pay family-sustaining wages.
