Request an Invite

Business Roundtable invites you to join us on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, in Washington, DC, for our CEO Workforce Forum, where we will examine private sector initiatives and public policies that invest in workers, deliver upward mobility, and advance economic opportunity to ensure U.S. global competitiveness and an ever-ready workforce. 

Welcome and Opening Remarks
Modernizing America’s Workforce System
The panel will explore how policymakers can improve the nation’s workforce development system to better prepare workers for in-demand careers and strengthen U.S. competitiveness. This includes how federal policy can empower states to structure workforce systems that meet their economic needs and deliver for workers, promote high-quality employer-driven training programs, and give workers more freedom and flexibility to the training they need for fulfilling careers. The panel will also discuss how corporate- led workforce initiatives can inform — and benefit from — policy reforms.
Postsecondary Pathways Reimagined
This panel will spotlight member company efforts to expand the pipeline of talent through partnerships with higher education, as well as community and labor organizations.
Untapped Talent: Expanding Workforce Opportunities
This panel will spotlight member company efforts to reform companies’ hiring and talent management practices, including by promoting skills-based hiring in the workforce.
