Panel 1 - The Accountability Factor: Who’s in Charge of Workforce Readiness?

A topic that has been continually debated in the news, in the classroom, and in the workplace, provided a stimulating point for discussion on: the ways higher education must evolve to serve the work force now and in the future, the reasons why corporate budgets for education and training continue to shrink, how Millennials are changing the work environment, and the ways in which education and industry must collaborate to more effectively build a workforce that is ready for the challenges that lie ahead.

Panelists: Anthony P. Abbatiello, managing director, Accenture Strategy - global human resources consulting lead; Alphonso David, deputy secretary and counsel for civil rights, Office of the New York State Governor; Lawrence Ingrassia, deputy managing editor of The New York Times (moderator); Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources, CareerBuilder; Lauren Weber, reporter, Careers and Workplace Issues, The Wall Street Journal; and Kathryn Wylde, president and CEO, Partnership for New York City.
