Description

Please ​join ​us ​for ​the ​Microsoft ​YouthSpark ​Connections ​breakfast ​on ​April ​9 ​from ​8 ​until ​10:30 ​am ​at ​the ​Microsoft ​Office ​in ​Denver, ​CO. ​ 

Location: 
7595 ​Technology ​Way, ​Suite ​400 
Room: ​Maroon ​Bells 

The ​event ​audience ​will ​be ​comprised ​of ​top ​influencers ​in ​Education ​and ​Public ​Policy ​from ​the ​State ​of ​Colorado. 

America ​is ​at ​a ​crossroads; ​while ​there ​are ​more ​young ​people ​than ​ever ​before, ​according ​to ​research ​by ​the ​Brookings ​Institution, ​many ​of ​them ​are ​struggling ​to ​find ​work ​amongst ​our ​labor ​force. ​Simultaneously, ​many ​open ​positions ​remain ​unoccupied ​as ​employers ​are ​unable ​to ​locate ​workers ​with ​the ​required ​skill-set. ​Many ​of ​these ​unfilled ​jobs ​are ​in ​the ​fields ​of ​Science, ​Technology, ​Engineering ​and ​Mathematics ​(STEM) ​– ​the ​industries ​that ​propel ​innovation, ​competition ​and ​economic ​growth. 

What ​are ​we ​doing ​to ​address ​this ​skills ​gap ​and ​prepare ​our ​students ​to ​enter ​and ​excel ​in ​these ​competitive ​industries? ​Microsoft, ​in ​collaboration ​with ​the ​Brookings ​Institution, ​is ​exploring ​this ​urgent ​condition ​in ​an ​exclusive ​complimentary ​event ​series ​called ​Microsoft ​YouthSpark ​Connections. ​Join ​us ​as ​we ​examine ​the ​most ​current ​research ​on ​youth, ​education, ​and ​the ​opportunities ​to ​better ​meet ​the ​requirements ​of ​the ​labor ​market ​through ​education. ​
