The LSEDC strives to be a resource for the Education EcoSystem in the Lee’s Summit community.  We can serve as a bridge between education and industry and aid in making connections. We encourage our education partners and instructors to reach out for assistance in connecting with businesses.

The intention of this page is to be a resource for our educators to reach out to the LSEDC for industry connections, view industry workforce data, and explore industry careers.
