Building an Effective Workforce for the Future Conference | Overview

From healthcare to manufacturing, U.S. industry sectors are undergoing tremendous shift. The continual introduction of new technologies is transforming industry needs, necessitating new skills and job roles, and requiring workers to reskill and upskill rapidly. What does this mean for the workforce, and how can companies and organizations prepare to meet evolving needs?

Hosted by ANSI and its affiliate Workcred, Building an Effective Workforce for the Future will engage nationally-renowned workforce and industry experts in conversation with attendees about the future world of work. Highlights include:

  • Morning Keynote: Patrick Gallagher, Ph.D., Chancellor, University of Pittsburgh, Former Under Secretary for Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Afternoon Keynote: Anthony Carnevale, Ph.D., Director, Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce
  • Interactive Panel Discussions:
    • The Future of Work will feature forward-looking conversations about what companies and organizations can do to best prepare for challenges in the "future world of work." Experts will examine the intersection of learning, education and training, and work, and discuss the focal questions: How will new technologies change skill demands, and how will companies need to change to ensure that their skill needs are met?
    • New Credentials for the Future Workforce will address new methods and types of credentials that are disrupting traditional models of learning – from skills-based hiring, to badging, and online education.
    • Upskilling, Reskilling, and Retraining Today’s Workforce will focus on ways in which organizations are upskilling and reskilling their current workforce to meet the shifting demands of industry.
