IIE/Diplomatic Courier Livestream: "The World in 2050 – A Forum About Our Future,"

The Institute of International Education will join the Diplomatic Courier as a Thought Partner for its 2016 series "The World in 2050 – A Forum About Our Future," beginning with a pre-Davos Global Talent Summit hosted by Gallup and the Diplomatic Courier in Washington, DC on January 13, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Join via livestream).

This day-long special event will convene innovators, educators, industry leaders and data gurus to discuss the demands placed on today’s diverse and global workforce. IIE Vice President Edith Cecil will speak about The Future of Learning at the Global Talent Summit.

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. 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.

IIE will add the perspective that international education is one of the best ways to prepare today’s students for the global workforce and equip them to solve the increasingly complex challenges facing our interconnected world.

We invite you to join the conversation on Twitter via @diplocourier and @IIEGlobal, using #Worldin2050 and #2050Jobs.
