March 9, 2018


ASME members have been offered complimentary registration to the U.S. News STEM Solutions Presents: Workforce of Tomorrow National Leadership Conference, which will be held April 4-6 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. ASME’s presence at the event will lend a much-needed perspective on the state of America’s sustained competitiveness and ways in which we can better integrate education, apprenticeships, community programs, and other opportunities to fill the pipeline of skilled workers needed to fuel our innovation economy.

Now in its seventh year, the conference is the leading event for executive-level leaders from industry, academia and government who are dedicated to promoting the development of a workforce that is proficient in science, technology, engineering and math. The National Leadership Conference is focused on advancing practical, self-sustaining strategies for inspiring, educating and hiring the diverse STEM workforce of tomorrow. ASME is a supporting organization of the 2018 Workforce of Tomorrow National Leadership Conference.

This year’s conference program will encompass a variety of activities addressing the theme “Skills, Jobs and the New Collar Economy,” including several STEM workshops, opening and closing keynote sessions, roundtable discussions of current and future workforce trends with representatives from the Adecco Group, and sessions discussing such topics as strengthening career and technical education, encouraging diversity in the workplace, preparing K-12 students for college and careers, expanding experiential learning programs and competency-based education, gauging the impact of robotics and artificial intelligence on the future job market, and developing effective STEM policy approaches at the state and local level. The three-day event will also feature receptions and breaks where attendees will have the opportunity to network with their peers and interact with some of the STEM leaders presenting at the conference.
