ADVISORY: A Labor Market for the Digital Age: Pathways and Opportunities

A joint event co-sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute, Center for American Progress, and Markle Foundation

Washington, D.C. — It is time for a new conversation. Amid large-scale economic transformation, it is vital to ensure that all Americans benefit from the wave of digital revolutions that have permeated modern life. While these changes have brought many benefits, there are too many Americans who do not know where to find opportunity in this new networked era. We need a path to a hopeful future.

At an event focused on navigating the 21st-century economy, American Enterprise Institute President Arthur Brooks and Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden will offer opening remarks, followed by a conversation among Markle Foundation CEO and President Zoë Baird, Purdue University President Mitch Daniels, and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) and moderated by Walter Isaacson, president and CEO of the Aspen Institute.

Join the conversation on social media at #AmericasMoment and by following @AEIecon, @amprog, and @MarkleFdn.
