Please help: Survey for Regional Aerospace Workforce Initiative

The FPC is assisting the Regional Aerospace Workforce Initiative (RAWI), which is a partnership between Florida High Tech Corridor Council, Brevard Workforce, Workforce Central Florida and the Center for Business Excellence that will bring together leaders from across the region in areas of economic development, workforce, education, technology transfer and industry. The RAWI results will also assist the FPC in its work with UCF Continuing Education to provide photonics technician training to displaced workers over the coming year.
The intended outcome of the RAWI effort is to develop a regional strategy that will indicate current and future economic events that will positively effect the transition of the aerospace workforce capacity throughout the region. Through regional alignment of workforce, education and economic development the region will better understand organizational, process and program gaps in their respective systems to help build a more comprehensive regional approach that will diminish impacts to the aerospace workforce capacity.
The RAWI is tasked with: reviewing the region’s existing and emerging assets; obtaining feedback from community leadership; and participating in a SWOT analysis to help guide the overall development of a regional strategy with a shared identity and vision for the regional economy. The link included here leads to a survey that will provide benchmark data and feedback to help identify successful processes and gaps that exist in the current system. Results of this and earlier versions of this survey will be presented in aggregate at the FPC meeting on Dec 2. We ask your cooperation in completing this survey by Friday, 30 October. If someone else in your company is more appropriate to complete the survey, please forward this email to them.

Here is the link for the RAWI Survey:

Thank you in advance for your time in addressing these questions of importance to Florida.

FPC Executive Director
