Speakers Announced for Credential Engine’s 2021 State Convening

This year’s virtual State Convening will feature three distinct sessions with national experts and thought leaders from state agencies, funders, education associations, workforce organizations, and more.

If you haven’t registered yet, we invite you to join us on November 30, 2021, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm ET to learn how we can work “Toward a More Transparent Credential Landscape Through Policy, Leadership, and Equity.” Registration to this year’s Convening is complimentary.

Why Should I Attend?

There are nearly one million unique credentials available in the United States, each one representing an opportunity for people to get ahead. But people lack the necessary and timely information to find the best education and training opportunities for them. Without better information about credentials, how can people find and act on their opportunities?

State policymakers and agencies have the important responsibility of ensuring their residents have the information they need to make well-informed decisions, especially during this time of economic recovery and continued labor market uncertainty.

During our 2021 State Convening, thought leaders in the learn and work ecosystem will put forth concrete solutions and opportunities that states can leverage to equitably address these challenges. Together, stakeholders can work to create a more transparent and equitable credential landscape that can illuminate paths to a better future for people, industry, and states.

What to Expect

Below is the list of invited speakers in our engaging agenda. We will begin with a timely and important conversation on the value of credential transparency followed by two moderated expert panels.

  • The Vision and Value of Credential Transparency: A Conversation will reflect on the vision and value of credential transparency and the work that remains.
  • Panel: Illuminating Equitable Opportunities and Pathways will bring national thought leaders together to discuss how credential transparency promotes equity, specifically through equitable opportunities and career pathways.
  • Panel: Credential Transparency in State and Federal Policy will leverage state examples to showcase the many benefits of having clear, reliable, accessible, and actionable credential data.
  • Participants will also hear from Credential Engine staff about resources and upcoming opportunities to get involved.

Register today! We hope to see you there!
