We live in a time of rapid technological change, which can inspire both excitement and anxiety. Innovation offers great possibilities, but it also means that the modern workforce requires new knowledge, skills and habits.
We have a responsibility to prepare all New Jersey kids for the jobs of tomorrow. How can our education system rise to these challenges and opportunities? How can our schools become more flexible, innovative and agile? It will certainly be complex, and will require energy, collaboration and creativity. And we think this event is a wonderful opportunity for all of the above!
Age of Agility will bring business leaders, education experts, and policymakers together to strategize for this changing workforce. It will offer:
- A keynote from Carl Van Horn of Rutgers University and Dennis Bone of Montclair State University
- A Dynamic Workforce panel featuring speakers from Verizon, Siemens, IBM, Prudential, and more
- An Education Innovation panel featuring speakers from Drew University, Universal Technical Institute, and others
We invite you to come, network, plan and learn with us on Wednesday, January 9, 2019!
