Amplifying Learner Voices

South Carolina Council on Competitiveness President & CEO Susie Shannon, Roadtrip Nation Creative Director Willie Wittezehler, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Senior Program Officer Isa Ellis, and Roadtrip Nation President & Co-Founder Mike Marriner discuss amplifying learner voices at the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit.

Join career exploration nonprofit Roadtrip Nation as they debut a range of video footage from two place-based partnerships with the Gates Foundation in Texas and the Department of Commerce in South Carolina—each focused on directly amplifying learners’ voices in order to better understand and meet their needs. Featured panelists from these partnerships will join us to discuss how human-centered storytelling can be leveraged to inspire and engage the next generation as they define their own education and career paths. We’ll also cover key insights surfaced by learners, including the power of work-based learning experiences.
