4-Part Webinar Series

Moderator and Host: Ira S Wolfe

Guest: Edward E Gordon

Future of Workforce Thought Leaders Webinar Series

“The ‘normal’ path to employment is on life support,” says Future of Work Global Thought Leader Ira S Wolfe. The COVID-19 pandemic might have just nailed the broken education-to-employment coffin closed, Wolfe warns. “Everyone is focused on jobs. Jobs are just a shiny object in the scheme of things. The whole concept of what it means to be employed and the skills and abilities you need to be employed is being rewritten on the fly.”

To help employers, workers, and students understand the future of work and jobs, Wolfe’s consulting company Success Performance Solutions recently recorded a 4-part webinar series. Wolfe was joined by Edward E Gordon, internationally recognized futurist, economist, researcher, author, and historian. The series is free to attend.

Wolfe has been warning about a “Perfect Labor Storm” since 1999. Edward E Gordon has been warning about a global talent meltdown for even longer. Their paths crossed in the early 2000s and they have both written and spoken extensively about the future of work, jobs, the skills gap, and the broken education-to-employment system.

Here are descriptions of each webinar with links to the videos right below.
