On Friday, May 7th, MAX was joined by key policy experts who helped us understand changes in workforce policies from paid leave to computer science funding, how they impact the work we do in workforce development, and the opportunities they present for those we serve.
Joining MAX was Marshall Guest and Tim Cairl with the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Cosby Johnson with the Georgia Chamber, Polly McKinney with Georgia Voices, and Asenith Dixon with The College Board. The session was hosted by MAX vice chair John Helton with Atlanta CareerRise and moderated by MAX board chair Amy Lancaster-King with the Metro Atlanta Chamber.
