Yes, I'm super excited too! I just got word that we will be hearing from U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan who will provide a specially taped message to the Talent Dividend conference attendees to open our conference on Monday, April 8 at 12pm. YAY! I just had to share that first!
The conference itself will be held in Philadelphia from 12pm on April 8th to 2:30pm on Tuesday, April 9th. The conference location is WHYY Philadelphia located at 150 N. 6th Street (right on Independence Mall and across the street from the Liberty Bell).
Mayor Nutter, a staunch supporter of the Philadelphia Talent Dividend will give a keynote on Tuesday morning.
Additionally, we'll have a number of panels and break out sessions addressing cross sector collaboration, equity, and sustainability. This meeting is FOR the cities competing so we also want to be sure there is some working and networking time built in.
We're very excited about this year's meeting and registration will open in the next week.
