Preparing the Next Gen for Careers of the Future

Digital Promise Global President and CEO Jean-Claude Brizard, American Student Assistance President & CEO Jean Eddy, and HORN-ED LLC Author Michael Horn discuss preparing the next gen for careers of the future at the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit.

Changing the way kids learn about careers is a multifaceted challenge that touches all education systems, employers, communities, and learners. Unfortunately, today’s solutions are outdated or not universal and cohesive. Upending one system or set of solutions will only partially solve the problem. What we need is a “Brave New World” approach that reimagines how products are created and consumed by learners, how educators embed work-based learning, how to work career readiness and entrepreneurial education into the learning process, and how education systems, employers, investors, and communities come together to create a new paradigm that blurs historical entry and exit points to education and employment.
