Lance Gentry, a professor in the College of Business, will present a session with Rappahannock United Way President Janel Donohue, ”Understanding the Region: Who are we and what are our opportunities?” on Oct. 17 at UMW’s Stafford Campus. The session will be one of three free sessions presented by the George Washington Regional Commission as part of its new program, Good Jobs Here.

According to an article in The Free Lance-Star, Gentry and Donohue will “discuss some of the key demographics and opportunities related specifically to Planning District 16. This will include a look at new data on the region’s workforce, including those who commute, and some unique opportunities that the region has to develop and grow economically.”

“The session will also take a special look at the portions of the region’s population that are working but struggling, so they can be included in the program’s long-term plans for success.”
