Since its founding, America has grown stronger by attracting the best and brightest from around the world. The current skilled-labor shortage — particularly for workers in science, technology, engineering and math occupations — puts the United States at a disadvantage. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a shortfall of more than 200,000 advanced degree STEM holders by 2018. What will the jobs of the future look like? What skills will they require? How can we modernize education to meet the needs of a modern economy? How can we ensure inclusiveness in the knowledge economy?
Please join FWD.us as we explore the future of the American workforce. Our featured panelists include Jerome Ternynck, CEO and Founder of Smartrecruiters, Jarvis Sulcer, Executive Director of the Level Playing Field Institute and a representative from General Assemb.ly in a discussion moderated by Engine Advocacy Executive Director, Julie Samuels.
