About the series: Throughout October 2015, CLTV and Educator Innovator explored the landscape of the new economy and considered what kinds of skills and resources young people need as they seek to build more robust pathways to opportunity. We also highlighted the changing social and economic factors that structure young people’s transition to adulthood and the ways creative labor is being remade today. Lastly, participants discussed how cities, schools, and tech leaders might drive innovation that is more robust, open, and inclusive, along with policy options for effectively addressing opportunity gaps in the tech sector and innovation economy.
