The Future of the Workforce – Washington, DC

In-Person Event | Washington, DC

Location information will be provided in a separate email once your registration has been confirmed.

New challenges exacerbated by the pandemic have created a unique inflection point — a necessary pause that leaders of companies across the country are using to step back and reimagine a workforce that could better serve their teams. Educational institutions have responded to the ways under-resourced and disenfranchised groups were disproportionately hit and are coming up with solutions that can build untraditional pipelines into the future of work; think tanks are considering the ways an uncertain political future may impact the career preparation ecosystem; and leaders across sectors are advancing programs that can support all levels of learning and skill-building, from K-12, to college associates and vocational degrees, to adult education, and to professional development. 

During a series of inspiring salons hosted across three cities — New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. — we’ll unpack some of the biggest questions about how to build that workforce of the future: How can we build pathways to opportunity that are accessible for a wider array of people? What are the skills needed to set today’s workforce up for success? How can we balance individual flexibility and seamless collaboration? What are the right ways to talk about and mitigate burnout? And how can we become the best leaders we can be — both online and off?

Each conversation will be tailored to the specific work and unique challenges that are playing out for leaders in that city. Although we know that no one company, sector, or industry can advance the state of work on its own, our hope is that by drawing examples from the inspiring leaders who are innovating across the country, we’ll be able to create composite image of the best solutions, recommendations, tools, and opportunities available, which we can then share with our wider community. 

This event is open to all Council members, especially CEOs, founders, educators, researchers and others in leadership roles.
