  • A crisis of human capital is keeping millions of Americans from the opportunity to earn a good life. The problem? Too few workers have the opportunity to receive training directly tied to available, good-paying jobs.

    Join us for a conversation about a key way to address this critical issue—expanding and modernizing apprenticeships for the digital age. Experts covering the entire apprenticeship ecosystem will be discussing how to create new apprenticeships, the role of intermediaries, and the role of federal policy.

    Opening remarks from Senator Chris Coons (DE) and Representative Seth Moulton (MA-6).

    Panel discussion featuring: 

    • Angela Hanks, Center for American Progress
    • Dane Linn, Business Roundtable
    • Gretchen Morgan, CareerWise Colorado

    Moderated by: Jesse O'Connell, Lumina Foundation

    Breakfast will be served at 8:45 AM.
