Registration is now open for Tomorrow’s Talent, a workforce and education summit that brings together national and local experts to focus on ways for young people to realize their full potential in education and the workforce — creating the maximum impact to the regional economy.
The event is from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, at the Muhammad Ali Center. Registration is free.
Tomorrow’s Talent is presented by KentuckianaWorks, 55,000 Degrees and Greater Louisville Inc., with funding from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation and UPS.
The keynote speaker will be Richard V. Reeves of the Brookings Institution, where he is Senior Fellow, Economic Studies and Co-Director of the Center on Children and Families. His research focuses on social mobility, inequality, and family change. Prior to joining Brookings in 2013, he was director of strategy to the UK’s Deputy Prime Minister.
Reeves’ latest book is Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class Is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is a Problem, and What to Do about It.
In September 2017, Politico magazine named Reeves one of the top 50 thinkers in the U.S. for his work on class and inequality.
Additional breakout sessions, lightning talks and TED-style presentations will feature an eclectic lineup of presenters and topics.
Mayor Greg Fischer, who has launched initiatives such as Cradle to Career and the SummerWorks jobs program to maximize youth achievement, will attend and present.
Light refreshments begin at 8 a.m., and lunch will be provided.
