THE FUTURE OF X: EDUCATION
Building a Workforce for the Economy of Tomorrow
 
As one of the fastest growing and highest paid industry sectors in NYC, access to jobs in the technology sector has become ever more important. All New Yorkers must be able to access these jobs and be provided with opportunities for skill development and continuing education to keep up
on this fast evolving industry.
 
In this panel, hear from leaders who are redefining what education means,
at all age levels, for the new economy. Learn how they are connecting their curriculum directly with today’s workforce while creating
a more diverse and equitable pipeline of talent.
