A New Map for Old Jobs: Developing Blue Collar Skills in the New World

Upsmith Founder & CEO Wyatt Smith, WorkWhile Co-founder & CEO Jarah Euston, Holmes Corporation Chief Growth Officer Josh Slayton, Interplay Learning VP of Product Ariana Dugan, and GSV Ventures Principal Joe Murdy discuss developing blue collar skills in the new world at the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit.

There is an acute skills shortage in the blue-collar workforce, the backbone of the global economy. The question of how we create opportunities to recruit and upskill blue-collar workers is more pressing than ever. However, when set against the backdrop of an increasingly automated world, the question of what skills we develop becomes even more pressing.
