Global Perspectives on Strategies for Strengthening Education to Employment Pathways

This panel will discuss the range of common challenges in preparing young people for the rapidly changing needs of employers, both locally and globally. Panelists will consider both common and location-specific conditions that prevent many young people from achieving their potential and hamper the economic development and productivity goals of employers and regions. The panel will showcase a range of strategies that have been successful in strengthening the education to employment pathways for youth and young adults, building some that foster the continual learning and adaptation on the job that today’s employers demand.
