Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia at B.PHL Innovation Fest as we explore the importance of workforce development so that workers are prepared to address tomorrow’s challenges, particularly in life sciences—a growing sector in the Philadelphia region and an important one for our country and the world.

Especially as we continue to emerge from the pandemic, which has shed light on challenges and vulnerabilities that both employers and employees experience—at home in Philadelphia and around the country and world—it is ever more important that workers have the necessary skills, education, and training for a technologically and medically advanced future.

Lauren Swartz, the President & CEO of World Affairs Council of Philadelphia, will act as moderator. The speakers attending so far are the Director of STEM Workforce Partnerships, Phil Brooks, and the Director and Representative to the Bretton Woods and Multilateral Organizations, Kevin Cassidy. Other panelists will be announced shortly. 

This event is in person so make sure to register today!
