Principals and leading business executives will share on-the-job work experiences at a roundtable discussion culminating the third annual Executive Shadow Day.
The roundtable, followed by a reception, will take place on Monday, April 26, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., at the GEICO corporate offices at 5260 Western Avenue in Chevy Chase. The discussion will focus on ways the business and education communities can expand their partnerships and continue to develop strategies that address current and future workforce issues.
The third annual Executive Shadow Day is sponsored by the Greater Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce, Montgomery County Workforce Development Corporation, Career Connections, Leadership Montgomery and Montgomery County Public Schools.
A number of participating executives and principals from elementary, middle and high schools will "shadow" each other by spending the earlier part of the day as host in their school or business and part of the day as visitor, so that each is able to become familiar with the duties and challenges of the other. Each pairing is designing an individual agenda for the day and scheduling when time will be spent at the school and at the place of business.
