  • Workforce skill gaps are real. College-going is trending down in the US and demographic headwinds are gathering all over the world. In this environment, great companies don’t just find talent: they grow it, by embracing the future of learning and workforce development. This talk peers around the corner from Zoom rooms to AI and VR. Anya sketches out the landscape of learning innovation, including:

  • The Stolen Year(s): From Crisis to Resilience and Growth
  • The pandemic kicked off one of the biggest social experiments in history—one in which school, work, and life converged, forcing many of us to accommodate distance learning, remote work, and every-day life under one roof. The long-term implications for students, parents, employers and employees are profound. With a futurist’s eye for what comes next, Anya Kamenetz considers the impact on the K-12 education system, on colleges, business, and work. In presentations that have been called both reassuring and inspiring, Kamenetz encourages people to think about their own experiences in a broader historical context, and she tailors her presentation to the needs of each audience.
    • With business and future of work audiences, Kamenetz considers the role of technology and lessons learned. She also traces the many links between the pandemic, the “Great Resignation,” and the growing realization that building diverse, equitable and inclusive working environments is critical to recruitment and retention, economic growth and a more resilient workforce. For audiences interested in workforce development, she looks at the pandemic-inspired wave of innovation behind the latest trends in delivering onboarding, training, staff engagement and skill-building content to employees and teams wherever they happen to be.
    • With K12 audiences, Kamenetz explores the enormous long-term costs of the pandemic on society given its disproportionate impact on women and children—particularly women and children of color. With higher-ed-focused audiences, Kamenetz looks at how attitudes about remote learning have changed post-pandemic and considers the impact of innovation and technology on our growing ability to support more affordable, self-directed and interactive learning paths in the future. For audiences of college students, Kamenetz explores the personal lessons of resilience that students have been forced to build on, and she inspires them to take an active role in shaping a better future.
