Webinar Series #6: How the Common Language of Skills Will Write the Future of Workforce Development

Join us online for the last webinar in the SEMI Virtual Forum series, Work & Life in the 21st Century.


1:30 pm – 2:30 pm


Online, Pacific Time,
United States

In the American economy, connections between learning and work get lost in translation. Employers struggle to find people with the right experience, workers struggle to demonstrate their qualifications, and colleges and universities struggle to communicate value and relevance to the job market.  Whether we’re experiencing the full employment of the recent past, or facing today’s unprecedented rates of unemployment, addressing these misalignments is key for the future of workforce development.

In this talk we will discuss how to better connect people, education, and work through the common language of skills. We’ll explore how real-time labor market data focused on skills can improve how people write resumes and profiles, businesses write job postings, and learning providers create training and educational curriculum.
