Highlights from the 2019 CTE Summit
Silvia Cheuy
Keynote: Sylvia Cheuy

Sylvia Cheuy, a consulting director from the Tamarack Institute, kicked off the 4th annual UW-Stout CTE Summit. The theme for 2019 was Opportunities in CTE Through Collective Impact: Understand the power of together. Recognizing that many stakeholders engage in work which is critical to workforce development, the focus was on collective impact; specifically, community building, sharing resources, systems change and collaboration. Following the keynote, Sylvia facilitated a panel consisting of individuals from various sectors engaging in collective impact work.  From there, participants had opportunities to share ideas, learn and network with other professionals engaged in workforce development. The event wrapped up with a group discussion facilitated by Deanna Schultz, Director of the Emerging Center for CTE Excellence.
