From Education to Employment
Wharton Education Network (WhEN)
U.S. youth unemployment currently stands at 10.2%, double the national average of 4.9% (July 2016). Employers identify the lack of skills as the main culprit (45%). To close this gap, education providers are joining forces with corporates to ensure students come to market job-ready.
Please join the Wharton Education Network (WhEN) and Eden Capital to discuss these exciting developments with a number of education leaders, including:
- Rick Beyer, CEO, Lumerit
- Ryan Craig, founding Managing Director, University Ventures
- Srikanth Ramachandran, President, Revature
- Carol Vallone, CEO, Meteor Learning
We will have an evening of networking, a panel discussion and drinks around this important topic. Many thanks to Wharton Alum, Dina Said Dwyer, Founder of Eden Capital for hosting this event.
