VIRTUAL EVENT

Policy Watch: Advancing the Post-Pandemic Workforce

APRIL 15, 2021

Welcome

While GDP is expected to recover to pre-pandemic levels by mid-2021, the post-pandemic economy will be significantly different from the economy of January 2020. The pandemic’s acceleration of trends in remote work, digitization, and automation could permanently reduce demand for low-skill workers and require a radical transformation of the workforce to avoid a less competitive US workforce and locking in even deeper inequalities.  

The pace of change demands a workforce of life-long learners that can continually learn and develop new and needed skills. In response, the US will need to execute a comprehensive, collaborative strategy for preparing, upskilling, and reskilling a future-ready workforce. 

As an attendee of this webcast, you will learn:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on the workforce.
  • What the post-pandemic economy will look like.
  • The leading skills in demand in the post-pandemic economy.
  • How the US can prepare and train the American workforce for the demands of the next economy.
  • The main components of a comprehensive, collaborative strategy for preparing, upskilling, and reskilling a future-ready workforce.
