Talent Forward 2019

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 24, 2019 - 9:00am

Talent Forward has been called "one of the best, most effective events of the year connecting government, employers, nonprofits, and schools to facilitate collaboration around workforce, talent, and employability.

Today’s pace of change is rapid, and businesses of all industries and sizes are examining the trends shaping the workforce of tomorrow, while responding to the needs and changing expectations of the workforce of today. Education, work, and technology increasingly co-exist and overlap, and the relationship between learning and career advancement has never been closer.

Through all of this change, one thing is clear: There are many opportunities for students, workers, educators, and employers to be more in sync with one another.

Everyday workforce practices are transforming—how we prepare for present and future jobs, how we define and communicate the needs of those jobs, and how we hire for those jobs. Leaders in the business, education, and HR communities are redefining their roles and how they collaborate with one another to better connect students and workers to careers and advancement opportunities.

  • How can we create the right environment to support these new partnerships and encourage change that is disruptive without being destructive?
  • What does success look like? And who are the key players we need to make it happen?
