Horizons 2018: A Vision for Economic Advancement, Jobs for the Future’s biannual national summit, will explore one of the most pressing issues facing our nation: How will we transform education and talent development systems in the face of accelerating change to ensure economic advancement for all?
Over two days, more than 750 education and workforce development leaders will join with policymakers, industry leaders, tech experts, entrepreneurs, and investors to learn and share the latest thinking about the ways automation and technology are shaping America’s labor market, particularly for low-income populations. To survive and thrive in this evolving environment:
- Workers must anticipate change, be ready to gain knowledge and skills, and adapt to new work arrangements.
- Employers must think differently about their talent needs and how to meet them.
- Educators must prepare students with the skills and competencies needed to excel in jobs that have not yet been created.
