Innovation and America's Future Forum

November 10, 2011
Washington, DC

The Atlantic invites you to join us for our inaugural Innovation and America’s Future Forum on November 10, 2011 at Washington, DC’s Newseum.

We’ll convene a panel of top experts for solutions-oriented conversation on the necessary actions of the public and private sectors to nurture new ideas and educate the American worker for the 21st century.

The panelists will discuss how government, industry, and post-secondary educational institutions should respond to America’s declining college graduation rate and how policymakers can ensure that future generations of workers develop the skills necessary to compete on the global stage. What are the essential elements of effective coalitions to prepare students for 21st century jobs? What can we learn from current initiatives in this area? Are any highly effective strategies or best practices for addressing the "skills gap" emerging?

Visit us here on November 10 to watch the event live!
