Room: Ballroom

Many of the most promising solutions aimed at improving education and workforce training are happening at the local level in cities and states across the country. Public-private partnerships – between corporations, schools, government agencies, chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and more – have formed the backbone of efforts to fill the talent pipeline. Many states and localities have important results and lessons to share. Hear from government leaders, employers and other thought leaders about best practices, policies and approaches for success. This session will also include insights from high-performers among the U.S. News Best States, an interactive rankings and news analysis platform designed to inform citizens, business leaders and policymakers about where states excel in education, economy, infrastructure and more.

Presentations and conversations include:

  • A U.S. News Best States Leadership Roundtable
  • The Power of Partnerships
  • Spotlighting Government Solutions
