Breaking Down Barriers Through Education Benefits

EdAssist and WGU are working together to help adult learners reach their greatest potential through partnerships with companies like McDonald’s. In this session, EdAssist, WGU, and McDonald’s will provide three different perspectives on how education benefits, including low- and no-cost degrees, upskilling and reskilling, and student debt repayment programs, can break down barriers to education and help working learners climb the ladder of opportunity from entry-level all the way to the C-suite.
