The Richard A. Swanson Lectureship Presents:

Employing HRD as an Intentional Strategy to Address the Challenges and Opportunities of the Demographic Shift in the State of Minnesota

Keynote Speaker: Louis J. King II
President and CEO of Summit Academy OIC

Louis KingLouis J. King II is President and CEO of Summit Academy OIC, an organization merged in 1996 of Twin Cities OIC (Opportunities Industrialization Center) and Two or More, Inc. Summit Academy is a non-profit, educational and vocational training institute that empowers poor Twin Cities’ residents to become self-reliant and employed members of their community.

Mr. King has over 20 years’ experience in education, youth development and workforce development. His current work focuses on stabilizing families by ensuring that parents earn the wages needed to adequately support their children. King has recently pioneered the creation of the Emerging Workforce Coalition (EWC), a nine-member coalition working to ensure that the emerging workforces of color in Minnesota are prepared to contribute to the state’s economy via strong credentialed sector-based training. He firmly believes that “the best social service program in the world is a job”.

King is a graduate of Morehouse College with a B.A. in Political Science. Prior to joining Two or More, Inc. in 1993, he served in the U.S. Army for 10 years, achieving the rank of Major.
