[In-Person] Equitable Pathways to the Future of Work: A Roadmap for Growth Issue Forum

Thursday, June 02, 2022
9:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Analytics, automation, and artificial intelligence are reshaping the nature of work. While there is uncertainty over how disruptive the long-term impact of technology will be, we can see that the disconnect between K–12 and the private sector threatens to compromise our youth’s access to future high-skilled jobs and our resilience and success as a city. The average K-12 student will hit prime working years by 2030 and realigning these pathways will ensure that all youth have equitable access to pursuing careers in growing industries. 

Join us in person at the Science Center in University City for an interactive dialogue on how to best prepare students for the future of work in a world of constant technological change. Dive deep with regional leaders at the intersection of education, business, and workforce development to examine the education and business community’s role in fostering equitable pathways that will connect youth to promising fields. Discuss how our educational institutions and businesses can realign and collaborate more closely to build students’ skills in critical areas, including teamwork, design and systems thinking, lifelong learning, and real-world problem-solving.

Speakers to Date:
Dan Fitzpatrick, President, Citizens Mid-Atlantic Region
Katie Lavoie, Principal. Boston Consulting Group 
Lamont Terrell,  Inclusion and Diversity Lead, Pharma R&D, GSK
Miles H. Wilson, President & CEO, EducationWorks
