As the state’s economy becomes increasingly reliant on highly skilled workers, California stands to face a shortage of almost a million college educated workers by 2025. Report author Hans Johnson will discuss ways to bridge this education-skills gap with modest investments in programs aimed at improving college attendance rates, transfer rates from community colleges to four-year institutions, and graduation rates at four-year institutions.
This study was conducted with funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. This event is co-sponsored with the California Research Bureau.
Lunch will be provided and there is no charge to attend.

Hans Johnson is an expert in immigration, migration, population issues and demographics, housing, education projections, and workforce skills.
