Speakers: Chris Reilly, Tesla
Kris Sanchez, Interim Executive Director of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED)

 


It’s not only lithium-ion batteries and electric-vehicle motors being produced at the Tesla Gigafactory – the future of manufacturing and the next-generation workforce are being created through this impressive facility located in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. This one-on-one discussion with Chris Reilly explores Tesla’s $37.5 million investment into Nevada K-12 education over five years and the resulting innovative and visionary workforce development and education programs. Guiding the discussion is Kris Sanchez, Interim Executive Director of the Nevada Governor’s Office for Economic Development. The UEDA 2019 Annual Summit closes with tours of the Tesla Gigafactory on Wednesday, Oct. 2. This opening-session discussion sets the stage for the conference, inspires new thinking about industry involvement in workforce development, and provides valuable context for the tours ahead.
