THE KC REGION'S 

FRONT DOOR

FOR INNOVATION

For more than a century, the KC region has been a leader in global design and innovation. From architecture and engineering to technology and product development, KC-based innovators have revolutionized industries.

Today, the U.S. has a "once-in-a-generation" opportunity to innovate the nation's infrastructure with the historic passing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. To achieve the bold goals of this bipartisan deal, the U.S. must grow and train a new type of workforce, one that can both innovate and operate an infrastructure that is both cyber and physical.

 

At Keystone, we have brought together industry, education and non-profit partners to develop training and programming that will create a workforce that has the skills required by industry to succeed.
