July 8


From constant digitization disruption and automation to remote work and rise of the gig economy, workforce development planning has always undergone rapid change. But the pandemic accelerated these challenges and workforce recovery is inconsistent across the U.S. How can workforce leaders ensure equal access to opportunity and consistent rates of recovery?

Join Governing on July 8 at 10 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern for a one-hour webinar in partnership with Coursera and Deloitte to discuss the latest skills trends data and insights from Coursera’s Global Skills Report and Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends. We’ll examine the skills and career pathways critical to modernizing your workforce and recommendations for tailoring training and education in an evolving job market. We will also dive into the factors government workforce leaders should consider to build a more resilient workforce, as well as the practical but innovative actions they can take to better support the millions of workers relying on them.

Join us to hear how:

- Workforce leaders can keep pace with technological and disruptive change by leveraging skills trend insights

- The best way to navigate a complex workforce system, building collaboration to meet skills demand, promote job readiness, and create a scalable program.

- Governments are building a lifelong learning ecosystem - upskilling and reskilling their labor shed - reaching non-traditional and previously untapped workforce resources
