Shifting Economic Landscape at Roundtable Conference on Philanthropy

“Most of higher education is working from a 17th century ideal, a 19th century model, with 20th century content. None of that is producing 21st century workforce-ready graduates or 21st century workforce-ready thinkers,’” said Ed Smith-Lewis, the director of the UNCF/Lilly Endowment Career Pathways Initiative.

The Denver conference is the first of a busy fall for the Roundtable’s Economic Opportunity Program as it has another conference in Detroit on October 3—4 discussing strategies donors can support to boost entrepreneurship in their communities. The EO program will also conduct a joint preconference on October 25 at the 2017 Annual Meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona, entitled “Arizona’s Bold Efforts to Promote Education Work and Life Success.” The preconference will explore how Arizonans are benefitting from school choice and other programs that narrow the college opportunity gap.
