JFF Horizons – If you can dream it! You can do it!
by Eric Stoller
This week, our CEO and Co-founder, Guillermo Elizondo, takes the stage at JFF Horizons to discuss all of the ways in which Territorium is working to bridge education to employability. “Horizons, presented by Jobs for the Future, is the premier national platform for ideas and action to drive equitable economic advancement for all.” In April of this year, JFF officially partnered with Territorium by making an investment in the company via JFF Ventures.
Here’s more on the panel:
Thursday, June 15th
2:30PM CT – 3:15PM CT
Studio 2, 2nd Floor
Lightning round presentations are five 6-minute presentations from different speakers that present big ideas and new thinking on a particular topic.
“We are in unprecedented times as technological innovations such as automation, online collaboration and artificial intelligence are reshaping fundamental aspects of how and where people work. As the labor market shifts, many workers in mid to low-wage jobs will be left behind if not equipped with the right skillsets and competencies to adapt to the changing landscape.
Impact-focused startup founders are braving this new world to create scalable solutions that will provide economic advancement for all while enabling employers to hire and retain diverse talent. Whether it’s engaging the deskless workforce, eliminating the competencies and skills gap, empowering underserved populations (including women, immigrants, disabled workers, and communities of color), or providing holistic support to the low-wage worker, these innovative startups are leaving no stone unturned.
Join us to hear it from the horse’s mouth! Meet these impressive entrepreneurs with lived experiences that will shape the Future of Work!”
