About the Conference

This national discussion on strengthening America's workforce connected businesses, government agencies,
nonprofits, financial institutions, academics, and philanthropic organizations to:

• Reframe workforce development efforts as investments, not just social services

• Attract new resources and leverage existing funding sources

• Improve economic mobility and impact for workers.

The Investing in America's Workforce capstone conference took place October 4–6, 2017, at the AT&T Executive
Education and Conference Center in Austin, Texas.
