This event is the culmination of the Age of Agility National Tour that convened business, education, and policy leaders to develop solutions for aligning education pathways to the future of work.
We are living in a time of extreme and rapid innovation in technology, causing radical shifts in the workforce. Consequently, drastic changes must be made to how we educate students. Technologists, futurists, and business leaders alike are referring to this fundamental shift as the next Industrial Revolution. We call it the Age of Agility and we are calling for changes in education that match the forces of change within the modern economy.
Over the past year, America Succeeds and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation have led the Age of Agility National Tour. We brought together nearly 1000 stakeholders from across the country, including governors, state legislators, chambers of commerce, business leaders, educators, school administrators, and reform groups. Collectively, these stakeholders represent a national movement of changemakers ready to confront the challenges and champion the solutions needed to make a systems-level impact on education.
The Age of Agility Summit D.C. will present the insights and innovations we uncovered across the national tour. Join us to connect with local leaders from each state and get an inside look at where this movement is heading next.
