Prior to joining the Baker-Polito Administration, Massachusetts’ Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development, Rosalin Acosta, had gained wide respect as a financial and banking service professional. With over thirty years of experience in Greater Boston financial institutions, and having served in many community and civic capacities, including as a Board Member of The Boston Foundation, a Board Overseer at Boston Children’s Hospital, a Director of the Merrimack Valley Workforce Investment Board, and a Northern Essex Community College Trustee, she has been hands-on in a variety of community-level and executive-level North Shore endeavors. She brings this background and state leadership to Newburyport this Thursday, November 30th for a discussion and Q and A on the future of Workforce Development in Massachusetts. She’ll be touching on issues such as attracting and retaining a skilled workforce, and will be fielding questions about her plans for her term as Secretary.
