Cornerstone Dairy Academy™ builds career advancement opportunities

Jan. 2, 2014 | 0 comments


Applications are currently being accepted for the first-ever Cornerstone Dairy Academy™, a product of PDPW. The program will be held March 11-12, overlapping with the 2014 PDPW Business Conference.

Cornerstone Dairy Academy was developed by Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW) to foster the development of "soft skills" that complement the technical skills of those in dairy-related careers. Soft skills refer to the suite of traits related to personality, social skills, communication abilities and attitudes. Employers continuously cite soft skills as a top consideration when hiring and developing new employees.

Cornerstone Dairy Academy is intended for early-career professionals, students pursuing dairy-related careers in college and technical college, and individuals wanting to retool because they are at a crossroads in their dairy careers.

"The future of the dairy industry depends on its ability to attract, develop and retain qualified people," says Shelly Mayer, executive director of PDPW. "The combination of technical and soft skills is the foundation for a successful career. With Cornerstone Dairy Academy, PDPW is offering a soft skills business training not found anywhere else at this time."

The first Cornerstone Dairy Academy will be a two-day program beginning March 11, leading into the 2014 PDPW Business Conference, March 12-13, at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.

Day one, on March 11, will be devoted to training, including teamwork skills, communicating with different personality and leadership styles, workplace habits, business etiquette and professionalism. Day two, on March 12, will incorporate sessions at the PDPW Business Conference, using the professional and networking skills developed on day one.

Any professional in the dairy industry as well as students pursuing dairy related careers in college and technical college programs are welcome to apply for this training. Age is not a consideration for selection. Employers may wish to urge employees to apply. The application deadline is Feb. 19.

A diverse group of 30 applicants will be selected to create a quality learning experience.
