Hopkinsville, Ky - The South Western Kentucky Economic Development Council will host a half-day seminar on Economic Develompent 101 and Attracting Young Talent on Wednesday, March 15.

This is the first time in our nation's history to have five different generations represented in the workforce: the Silent Generation, the Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millenials, and now Gen Z."
