What will North Carolina’s economy look like in 2050? According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of today’s students will work in jobs that don’t exist today. What are the economic drivers that will play a key role in shaping our future over the next three decades, and what are the implications for our economy and institutions? Our panel of experts will share their knowledge and experience with an audience of 100+ attendees eager to benefit from their analysis and insights into North Carolina’s future challenges and opportunities. The panelists will address key questions regarding the impact of new technology on jobs, which sectors of the workforce will thrive or decline, the need for new approaches to postsecondary education and for policies and programs that will address the particular issues facing NC’s rural communities.
