Lifelong Learning

The world is changing at a radical pace, and both the education and labor market are experiencing a fundamental transformation. As workforce requirements evolve, so too must the systems that people rely on to learn and stay relevant.

The Rise Summit will dive into lifelong learning and explore how learning and skills development need to transform to account for the vast demographic, technological and social shifts impacting the way we learn and work, including:

  • Durable skills of the future and how we close an ever-widening skills gap
  • How the skills gap impacts our institutions, businesses and associations
  • Why flexible learning models are more important than ever
  • What we as leaders should do to prepare for these changes
