    Preparing for the arrival of Foxconn 

    Please join us for a Panel Discussion featuring:

    Winnie Tu, Director of Business Administration - Foxconn

    Susan Koehn, Director, Talent Initiatives - Milwaukee7

    Laura Million, Business Development Manager - Racine County Economic Development Corporation

    Lou Molitor, President/CEO - Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce

    Ray KoukariDean of of the School of Manufacturing Engineering and IT - Gateway Technical College

    The Panel will be moderated by SRKA President, Jane Kurylo.  

    Winnie Tu will start us off with a brief update about Foxconn's employment plans.  From there, each panelist will provide a brief update about the past, present and future initiatives they will be working on to support existing businesses in the Racine/Kenosha Area.  

    We are collecting questions in advance from our audience that will be used in the panel discussion.  Please submit your question(s) on the registration form or by email to jkurylo1@wi.rr.com.  Questions should be focused on how the organizations represented can support existing businesses.  We have received a number of questions geared directly toward Foxconn and how to gain employment there or to provide services to them.   We will likely not have time for these types of questions.  

    We continue to plan for this event and are considering having local non-profit organizations present to share how they can assist businesses with talent development (i.e. apprenticeship programs).  Anyone interested should contact Jane Kurylo at jkurylo1@wi.rr.com.

    Please note:  This is not a forum for political complaints or comments about Foxconn.  This event is reserved for HR professionals and small businesses that are interested in learning about activities and future plans to support the talent needs of organizations throughout the region.    

    This session is pending approval for SHRM Professional Development Credits (PDCs) and HRCI recertification credits.  Because of the type of event, credits may not be available.
