Please join our distinguished panelists for a discussion of how the private sector is preparing workers to meet the ever-evolving needs of a free and prosperous economy. We will examine how private companies across very different sectors of the American economy—manufacturing, software, and wireless infrastructure—are assessing their current and future workforce needs, and in turn, recruiting and training workers from both outside and within their companies to meet their sectors’ labor demands. While companies are doing a lot to develop a capable workforce to meet the demands of the current and future economy, the private sector faces some impediments to training up workers and creating opportunities for them to learn new skills and begin careers in high-demand fields. We will discuss what the Administration and Congress have recently done and can do to help open pathways for workers to obtain better careers and for all Americans to benefit from better alignment of workers skills with the economy’s needs.
