EC&M On Air — Creative Solutions to Workforce Shortage Crippling the Construction Industry: Part 2

Episode 42 features Part 2 of our conversation with Mike Greenwalt and Edward Cota on how construction leaders can bring a new generation to the electrical industry.


In Episode 42, we’re back with Part 2 of our discussion with Rosendin’s CEO Emeritus Mike Greenawalt and Edward Cota with Arizona’s Department of Education and chief strategy officer and chairman of the Arizona Education Economic Commission. In today’s section, EC&M Editor-in-Chief Ellen Parson continues this fascinating discussion with more information on how construction leaders can benefit from public-private partnerships like this, how to develop similar models to teach in middle schools and high schools, and how to help shift the perception of the skilled trades in not only students’ minds but also their parents’. They also cover ways they’re thinking outside the box by harnessing an immersive technological experience to attract kids and create greater interest in a career in the electrical field.

And in case you missed Part 1 of our conversation, you can listen to it here.
