Early Childhood Initiative and Human Capital Policies: The Path to Improving Workforce and Economic Competitiveness

June 03, 2010

Join ICW and the Partnership for America's Economic Success for an invitation-only event to discuss how early childhood initiatives can help improve our nation's workforce and economic successes.

Early Childhood Initiatives and Human Capital Policies: The Path to Improving Workforce and Economic Competitiveness

Date: Thursday, June 3, 2010
Time: 12:00–2:00 PM
(no registration fee, lunch is provided)

Why you should attend:

  • Our workforce is our single most important asset.  We can’t compete without it.
  • We need to improve our country’s education and workforce pipeline.
  • Research clearly demonstrates that investments in early childhood produce immediate and long-term economic benefits, yet we continue to under-invest.
  • Return on investment and evidence-based approaches are essential to smart policy.

Your colleagues should attend if they are concerned about workforce skills, workforce development, education policy, national competitiveness and economic sustainability.

Please direct any questions to Rob Krupicka, program manager, Partnership for America’s Economic Success via e-mail or phone at 202-552-6373.

This is an invitation only event.
