Welcome to the 3rd annual Global Talent Summit as we discuss the nexus of jobs and education. To thrive in a rapidly evolving, technology-focused world, future job seekers must not only possess strong skills in areas such as language arts, mathematics, and science, but also skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, persistence, collaboration, and curiosity. However, data shows students are not attaining these critical employability skills. Success in breaking through to a new wave of global growth and prosperity will depend increasingly on human and social capital. A new, global burst of innovation and entrepreneurship will require a deep pool of highly skilled, creative, inclusive, risk taking individuals and communities. Given the essential role of human capital in the coming expansion, a global war for talent is intensifying.
