Place Based Considerations for Developing a STEM Workforce
In today's world, change is the only constant. America at Work: A National Mosaic and Roadmap for Tomorrow, published by Walmart in partnership with McKinsey & Company, examines the capacity of different communities to respond to change - in this case, automation, which is drastically changing the face and pace of work - and develop responses that will position said communities to survive and thrive in a changing economy.
On this webinar, attendees will have the opportunity to hear directly from the report's authors about why and how they developed this report, key perspectives on responses to automation trends and lessons learned, and how geographic considerations are relevant to the ecosystem of stakeholders engaged in developing a diverse STEM workforce.
Bryan Hancock, Partner McKinsey & Company
