The goal of the meeting was to set the stage for a productive, sustainable initiative. RISE network leaders met one another — often for the first time — and were introduced to contacts, resources and potential partners. Government and private sector representatives shared their perspectives on developing curricula and programs relevant to the region’s economic growth. The group discussed mechanisms for management, reporting, and communications.
