Bridging the Digital Divide: An Economic Imperative for the 21st Century

Wednesday, August 8 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm • Organized By Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City
Online Event


The economy has been on one of the longest upturns in history with exceptionally low unemployment rates. Technical and digital skills are transforming jobs across all sectors. The downside to the changing economy is the large number of unfilled jobs requiring these skills and a large sector of our population in need of jobs, but which lack the relevant skills. This is the tip of a much larger socio-economic iceberg.

Join live on YouTube as thought leaders explore innovative approaches businesses are taking to address talent pipeline issues and the broader economic issue of the digital divide. YouTube participants can interact with presenters by texting questions during the event.

Solutions presented will focus on low or no-cost ways businesses can realign asset management, employee engagement, and talent pipeline strategies for high impact change.
