The panel we proposed for SXSWedu 2017, “Scaling the boot camp model for middle class jobs,” has been officially accepted for next year’s event.
We’ll be examining whether the “boot camp” training model, which so far has mostly taken root in the technology sector, has broader implications for closing the skills gap. Panel members include Burning Glass CEO Matt Sigelman; Rachel Romer Carlson, CEO and co-founder of Guild Education, Bridgette Gray, Executive Vice President of Per Scholas; and Byron Auguste, Managing Director of Opportunity@Work.
A key part of the SXSW PanelPicker process is public voting. We’d like to thank everyone who voted for our proposal, and we hope to see you in Austin next year. (If you’d like to know more about how the PanelPicker voting shaped up, check out the SXSW infographic).
