Georgetown on the Hill: Green, Smart and Broad Jobs
Our next Georgetown on the Hill event will focus on the opportunities for job creation in various sectors. As we transition to a greener economy what type of job growth can we expect? How does the shift from a goods based economy to a services based economy affect job growth? How do innovative platforms like broadband generate potential for job growth?
