Mayor Wu addressed the assembly and announced her initiative to place 1,000 Boston residents into good careers in biotech over the next two years. She called on companies to commit to these hires and on the others to recruit, support, and train people to thrive in these jobs. She also expressed the City's commitment to help with curriculum and other elements needed for success.
During the summit there was a discussion of what has been working well so far such as a biotech apprenticeship created by MassBioEd. The Mayor also listened closely to industry representatives and community members describe what is needed to increase the pace and scale of training and placement. Dr. Alicia Sasser Modestino from Northeastern University said that "all these partners will need to work together" in order "to create multiple on ramps and off ramps to training and employment" as well as providing opportunities for candidates to develop essential workplace skills with wraparound support being critical.
