Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have canceled the event “Creating the Workforce for Tomorrow” scheduled for Thursday September 21 from 8:00-9:30 am at Asia Society New York. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

The nature of jobs is changing daily, requiring increased adaptation and flexibility in the skills needed in the workforce. It is estimated that many current jobs will not exist by 2030. This creates a gap in how we are educating the next generation and the skills they will need to be successful in a rapidly changing world, meaning that the skills we are preparing people for today will not be relevant by the time they graduate. Join the Global Business Coalition for Education and the Center for Global Education at Asia Society for a dialogue focusing on the future workforce of Asia. Sarah Brown, Executive Chair of the Global Business Coalition for Education, will speak.

This event is co-hosted by the Global Business Coalition for Education. For more information , please contact the Center for Global Education at [email protected].
