Get the latest updates on school reopening straight from school leads. Discover how top CLOs are reimagining Learning and Development to drive equity and fuel corporate success.

Public Education in the midst of COVID
Has COVID and a renewed national spotlight on the long fight for racial justice fundamentally shifted how we educate? The Public Education after COVID Panel will cover a range of pressing issues including the digital divide, distance learning, school reopening, and race and social justice in the curriculum.
The Future of Work
If the job market was changing rapidly before COVID, the rate of change is exponential now. How can leaders in education and industry support skill acquisition for the innovation economy? And how do we balance short-term hiring to ameliorate unemployment with systems change? What role should businesses, elected leaders, and educators play in ensuring not only higher rates of employment, but family wage jobs and social inclusion at work? Join a conversation about partnerships and projects within our post-COVID world of work.
HR: Corporate Learning and Development
How can companies best respond to the new workplace? How can they use Learning and Development to achieve their strategic plans? Discover ways smart L&D, integrated with business objectives, can drive equity and fuel corporate success in the wake of COVID-19.

Philanthropy in Education
COVID has highlighted and exacerbated inequities in Silicon Valley, including unequal access to high quality education. What role should philanthropy play in responding to this crisis and creating a new, better, more equitable Silicon Valley? How can public education best leverage philanthropic funding?
