Crunching the Numbers: An Atlantic Forum on Data Analytics & Tomorrow's Workforce

March 30, 2017
Washington, DC

The number of jobs requiring data science and analytics skills is rising steadily every year, but a lack of college graduates with the knowledge to get them means many aren't being filled. Understanding this shortage and preparing students for jobs in data falls on colleges and universities alongside local governments and the business community.

The Atlantic will gather business and higher education leaders and public officials to examine the way data is changing what employers look for in graduates, how academic institutions structure curricula to respond to emerging skill needs and what these trends mean for the economy of the future.


8:00 — 10:30 am ET
