Birth to Work Pipeline - White Paper

One of the papers I found as a result of attending the Nov. 4 Drop Out Prevention Summit was one titled Ensuring Workforce Skills of the Future: The Birth to Work Pipeline, written by Rick Stephens, Senior Executive Vice-President of The Boeing Company and Elane V. Scott, Leadership Strategist for Developing a Capable Workforce.

The call to action says "It is vital that business, media, government,health, community and education leaders come together and align their visions as never before. No one sector has the responsibility, capability or capacity to operate alone."

This is what I've been writing about, and trying to achieve for the past 15 years. My voice is just a whisper in the wilderness. Hopefully some of these business leaders will read the articles on leadership and strategy that I've written, and adopt some of these ideas in their own messages, for their own self interests.

They don't use graphics in this paper, but here is a T/MC graphic that I feel expresses the goal of this paper.

You can see the strategy map, and follow the links, on the Tutor/Mentor Connection web site.

I urge readers of this blog to read the white paper, and respond to the call to action. Share this with leaders in your own business, faith group, college, alumni network. Then contact me to help you understand what you're looking at, or come to the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference on Nov. 19 and 20 and begin to connect your network and your ideas to the T/MC and the people in our network.
