Organized and chaired by Deputy Sector Navigator (DSN) for Global Trade & Logistics, Petural 'PJ' Shelton, this event is structured to 'open the dialogue and continue conversation' about how our regional community -- comprised of educators, administrators, business leaders, mentors and colleagues -- can better prepare students for the interconnected, global economy.
