Featured Speaker

Brad Keselowski

You know him as a world-famous NASCAR driver, we know him as the owner and founder of Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing. Brad will be on the Horizons main stage with a mix of other creative leaders, as we explore powerful workforce and education ideas for advancing the future of work and learning.

4 Pillars Shape the Dialogue

Horizons sessions will focus on JFF’s four pillars of transformation: Design, Scale, Influence, and Invest. Those concepts will come into play in presentations that explore how we can rebuild traditional systems to maintain a vibrant and equitable economy as we build a future that works.

Design

Develop new education and training models to yield bold, innovative solutions that support all workers and learners and align with the needs of business and the economy.

Scale

Curate and grow the most promising approaches that adapt to meet the needs of specific industries, individuals, and communities.

Influence

Drive the national conversation and shape policy to achieve economic advancement for all.

Invest

Identify smart investments and new capital models to seed and ensure the long-term success of education and workforce training innovations.

Our heart and humanity have to continually lead the way and propel us forward.
