What: What can we do now to support our workforce of tomorrow? How are industry leaders, educators and researchers finding solutions to students’ most pressing problems today? More than 400 education and community leaders will gather at this week’s Silicon Valley Leadership Group Education Summit to gain insight into Governor Newsom’s plan to fund the creation and implementation of a statewide longitudinal data system—including early childhood education, K–12, higher education, and the workforce. They will also dive into workable wrap-around services addressing student barriers to learning including homelessness, hunger, security, and mental health services. Education experts and luminaries will also address the advancement of technology and how industry leaders, educators, and researchers are addressing equity and ethics, while also continuing to build a diverse and inclusive workforce.
When & Where: Friday, August 9, 8 am – 2 pm at NetApp, 1395 Crossman Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA.
Speakers: There will be informed and thought-provoking conversations with leaders in their field including: Tony Thurmond, State Superintendent of Public Instruction; Dr. Lande Ajose, Senior Advisor for Higher Education with Governor Newsom’s Office; Dr. Mary Papazian, President of San Jose State University, and many others.
