This webinar addresses the opportunities and obstacles of moving from narrow definitions of work readiness based on job-specific technical skills to more inclusive and expansive notions of skills that span careers. A panel representing higher education leaders, trustees, and industry leaders, will discuss how work readiness is and should be defined at a time of profound economic and democratic disruption; short-term approaches and long-term opportunities for implementing work readiness for our students, our institutions, and the economy; and aligned strategies among higher education leaders and employers for determining the work readiness of college graduates.

This webinar is in partnership with the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and AGB partner Kaplan, with special thanks to the generous support of Kaplan.
