ABOUT

Join leaders from business, education and government for one of California’s premier education policy and talent development conferences.

Framed by COVID-19 and tensions in the wake of George Floyd, with legislators, school administrators, teachers and parents operating – literally – in separate spaces, this year’s convening has become a crucial information-sharing forum. 

Interact with key local, state and national decision makers in brief, timely panels, active Q&A, and topic-based networking rooms. 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.

Help shape teaching and learning across schools and industry for a post-COVID and post-George Floyd world.

AGENDA

8:30 am    Opening & Plenary Speaker

9:00 am    Breakout Sessions Block 1
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.

9:45 am     Break/Activity

10:00 am  Breakout Sessions Block 2
New Frontiers in Virtual Learning

As schools transition to distance learning, administrators and teachers are collaborating to create welcoming, engaging online communities. This panel will offer lessons learned in this transition – with a focus on leveraging resources that support equitable learning environments.

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? Join a conversation with prominent industry, education and foundation leads on a new vision for education-philanthropic partnerships.

HR: Corporate Learning and Development (Repeat Session)
