Presenters:

Amy Schulz, MBA
Feather River College
Director, Career Technical Education & Economic Workforce Development Enactus Advisor

Amy Schulz is a college educator and program administrator focused on how workforce development trends and future projections can be translated into relevant curriculum and meaning for today's students and educators. 

Entrepreneurial mindset is the core of future workforce development, and entrepreneurship education is woven throughout Amy's work. Projects include advising students in social entrepreneurship projects through Enactus, teaching entrepreneurship, convening skills panels with entrepreneurs, workforce development professionals and educators to determine relevant skills for the future of work, empowering rural educators to develop career technical curriculum to respond to workforce trends, bringing online work to a remote workforce, and human development work in Uganda. 

Amy's diverse network of collaborators have allowed her to bring innovative ideas and practices to rural and often remote communities of students, ultimately creating an even playing field for the often disenfranchised or isolated.

Rajinder Gill
21st Century Skills Counselor
Adult Education Director at Feather River College

Rajinder is a self-proclaimed futurist junkie and believes the best part of her work is preparing students to feel confident about their education and career options. She hopes to cultivate an ethic of life long learning and skill building in both her traditional aged students and adult learners.

During her graduate school studies, Rajinder conducted research at Oxford University in career education curriculum, worked with the Change Leadership Foundation in Ireland, and coached transformational youth leadership programs in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as Northern California. Also a certified Keirsey consultant, Rajinder couples temperament assessments with project based learning and 21st Century Skills curriculum.  She has found this combination of academic preparation with experiential learning is the key to promoting students’ self-awareness and preparation for the new world of work.

Rajinder holds a Master’s Degree in Postsecondary Education & Career Counseling with an emphasis in curriculum design from Dominican University of California.
