SEL DAY 2023 SUMMIT: Keynote

Tomorrow’s Workforce Needs SEL Today

The recent World Economic Forum highlighted the top skills that students need for jobs in the ever-evolving future. Foundational SEL concepts dominate the list: resilience, perseverance, communication, conflict resolution, goal setting, and self-regulation. How can educators, families, and employers collaborate today to build these skills for the next generation’s success tomorrow? Panelists from business and education will share how these two spheres can, and must, come together for excellence today and tomorrow.
