Skills-First Practices: The Catalyst for Inclusive Mobility

Mar 7, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

This session is part of the special 2024 Crossover Day. Attendance is open to all SXSW EDU badgeholders as well as all SXSW badgeholders. As always, SXSW strongly believes in the power of mixing creative communities.

In the past three years, we've seen increased energy among employers who recognize the value of focusing talent practices on skills as the key currency and signal for career opportunity and mobility. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, by 2025, over 40% of employers expect to prioritize skills over degrees when making hiring decisions. This session will discuss how business leaders can support their employees, through skills-first practices, in achieving their career and economic goals, while also creating a more resilient, dynamic, creative, diverse, and inclusive workforce.
