  • People Without Jobs and Jobs Without People: Bridging the Skills Gap

    Today, 14 million Americans are unemployed, while 3.5 million positions remain unfilled. Why? Because businesses can't find people with the right skills to do the jobs they need. Meanwhile, costs are rising exponentially, yet 53% of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. Geared toward industry leaders, policy-makers, educators, or anyone interested in our collective economic future, this lecture looks at the issues behind this often quoted “skills gap” or as Nicholas Wyman refers to it, the problem of “people without jobs and jobs without people.” Drawing on his work with the organizations, governments, and educational institutions who are pioneering the most cutting-edge solutions to the skills-gap problem, Wyman offers a roadmap for how organizations, communities, and educators can come together to develop the human capital needed to keep our businesses innovative and profitable, our economy healthy and humming, and our nation sustainably competitive in today’s global economy.
