The Race for Talent: Achieving a Competitive Economy


Strong economies are defined by well-paying jobs, held by individuals possessing knowledge and skills that are in demand.  Post-secondary education most often provides these skill sets.  While the US citizens are still among the best educated in the world, this high level of educational attainment has been achieved largely because those Americans now approaching retirement age are more highly educated than their counterparts in other countries. But when it comes to the younger generation, the US now ranks 12th in the number of 25- to 34-year olds with college degrees.  Businesses often cite the difficulty of finding qualified workers as a barrier to growth.  Talent is always the number one factor in site selection decisions.


What is being done in the Sun Corridor to address talent development?   Join our two University presidents, Dr. Ann Weaver Hart, President, The University of Arizona and Dr. Michael Crow, President, Arizona State University for a higher education update and a frank discussion on educating the next generation for jobs of today and the future.
