SSAI Leads the Discussion

September 24, 2019

The Concordia Summit 2019

SSAI convened thought-leaders from across the workforce development space at this year’s Concordia Summit to discuss innovative public-private partnerships addressing the changing nature of work. The Concordia Summit is the largest and most inclusive nonpartisan forum alongside the United Nations General Assembly. Bringing together decision-makers and opinion-formers in the public, private and nonprofit sectors, as well as the next generation of partnership-builders, the Summit advances critical global discussions and transforms conversations into action

Our panelists, who are highlighted below, joined our President & CEO, Gary A. Officer and represented policymakers, employers, and philanthropic organizations. They spoke to a packed room of global and social leaders on this critical issue during a roundtable called What Comes Tomorrow: A Future of Work Conversation.
