The Grand Challenge of Modernizing the American Workforce

Automation. A growing skills gap. Low wages. The enormous challenges we face related to the Future of Work have now been heightened by the global pandemic and rising inequities. How will we rebuild the economy and create a future of work that works for everyone? Dr. Angela Jackson will share insights and lessons from the Future of Work Grand Challenge — a multi-million dollar effort to rapidly reskill displaced workers into higher-wage jobs and workforce success. In her talk, Dr. Jackson will share ideas about competitive challenges spurs innovation by putting equity at its core, sourcing ideas from diverse entrepreneurs, elevating frontline workers in the challenge design, and advancing solutions that serve the most under-invested workers. The session will address the importance of worker-centered design and solutions; key learnings to fuel effective, equitable and rapid reskilling; and insights on what still needs to be done to create a future of work that works for everyone.

The Future of Work Is Human

Throughout human history, talent was primarily a function of the production of tangible, physical assets. Recent research has revealed that over the past fifty years the source of value creation shifted from tangible, physical assets to intangible assets notably human capital. In 2020 intangible assets, primarily human capital, comprises 90% of all enterprise value in the S&P 500. Additionally, as we hand off more and more mentally routine or predictable tasks to technology, human talent and ingenuity become increasingly important. The Securities and Exchange Commission began requiring all public companies disclose their human capital in order to provide investors insight into the operating model, talent planning, learning and innovation, employee experience, and the work environment. As a result, Dr. Jackson predicts we have entered the human capital era, an era in which we realize that humans are assets to develop rather than costs to contain—a profound shift in how we think about work and learning.
