Half a Trillion in Student Debt and Rising

Byron Auguste of Opportunity@Work, Dan Rosenweig (CEO of Chegg), and Charlie Javice (CEO of Frank) have a serious discussion on the effects of student debt on the workforce. In fact, the Federal Reserve recently reported that 400,000 more young people would have owned homes in 2014 if not for growing student loan burdens. Worst off may be the 37 million Americans with some college credits but no degree, many of whom bear the burden of crushing student debt without any of the wage gains that come with a college degree.

Join us for a discussion in search of solutions to a crisis that is choking off the human potential of millions of Americans. This discussion talks about the real implications of student debt on growing a workforce.
