Each year, this national conference unites the brightest minds in education and workforce development—business leaders, technology experts, non-profit organizers, policymakers and educators—to establish a self-sustaining STEM workforce for the future. The 2018 event is scheduled for April 4-6 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
TAG-Ed strengthens Georgia’s future workforce by providing students with access, exposure and awareness to STEM opportunities through innovative and relevant hands-on learning experiences. By providing exposure today through internships, professional development, immersion experiences and connections to industry professionals we help shape the future workforce possibilities and talent of tomorrow.
“Developing a national workforce skilled in science, technology, engineering and math is a complex task, but at its heart is one fundamental goal: jobs,” said Brian Kelly, Editor and Chief Content Officer at U.S. News & World Report. “This dedicated forum bridges dialogue between leaders across a broad cross-section of industries. The summit will address skills, jobs and the new-collar economy with a sharp focus on our mission of spotlighting solutions and best practices that are advancing STEM across the country. We are delighted that ORGANIZATION is committing its support by lending their thought leadership to this event.”
“As an organization positioned in a nationally recognized technology hub, TAG-Ed is committed to participating in national conversations and initiatives that positively impact a future STEM workforce for all students, ” said Errika Moore, Executive Director, TAG Education Collaborative. “As such we’re excited to join our colleagues in supporting the 2018 Workforce of Tomorrow National Leadership Conference.”
