I Want You: Enlisting Doers to Solve Wicked Problems for Rising Talent

There are roughly 30 million people in the U.S. without a postsecondary degree who are working in low-wage jobs. These individuals – a group we call Rising Talent – have been systematically kept out of opportunities and face the “wicked problems” most organizations avoid solving for. WGU is dedicated to understanding the needs and creating solutions for these individuals, but we know that we cannot do it alone. In this session we will present the case and “enlist” a group of like-minded organizations who will work together long after the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit to scale “what works” for the hardest problems facing Rising Talent.
