The OC Pathways Showcase is an annual celebration of the partnership between industry and educational leaders and their joint efforts to equip the next generation and fortify the county’s future workforce. Since 2015, we’ve gathered each year to showcase and celebrate student projects as they travel through their education and career paths aided by forward thinking business partners and educational leaders. As educators partner with businesses, increasing work-based learning partnerships, students are responding in ways that exhibit their agile adaptiveness, desire to persevere, and commitment to lifelong learning and development.

YOUR FUTURE WORKFORCE IS HERE
Reflecting the theme “Your Workforce is Here,” this year’s OC Pathways Showcase will spotlight the collaborative programs and innovative systems that are already shaping the region’s future-ready workforce. It will also show how local businesses can become more involved by offering student internships, hosting workplace tours, creating externships for teachers, participating in online meet-ups or helping educators develop coursework.
OUR HUMANITY, OUR TECHNOLOGY, OUR FUTURE
The 2018 OC Pathways Showcase took place on November 27 at Edwards Lifesciences in Irvine, CA. Featuring student-led exhibits and two Keynote presentations from Edward Lifesciences executives, the event highlighted the collaborative efforts of schools, colleges, and businesses to forge career pathways and establish work-based learning opportunities for students.
