Designing the New Skills-Based Economy: How Visibility is the Lynchpin to Equity

What is your role in making sure the new skills-based hiring innovations like tools, platforms, digital wallets, micro-credentials, learning models, and more actually create more visibility for learners and earners? Whether you are an employer, an Ed tech entrepreneur, a non profit or a college administrator, you have a role in shaping the emerging skills based ecosystem. The Lab’s forthcoming framework articulates a clear vision, rationale, and roadmap for how each stakeholder can do their part to unlock the visible learner-earner in the new skills-based economy. As we continue to unbundle traditional degrees and integrate machine learning, AI, AR/oyetVR, metaverse, and more to democratize, personalize and incentivize learning, training and hiring, there is one common thread that is the lynchpin to ensuring an equitable future: visibility. Join the Lab for a boundary spanning workshop to align on a vision and map the jobs-to-be-done by the various ecosystem stakeholders including states, higher education and workforce development entities, employers, ed-tech, philanthropy, and others.
