Please join in celebrating the culmination of the Minds that Move Us (MTMU) Adult Career Pathways Design Challenge!
Launched in 2018, the challenge focused on the creation of bold, sustainable career pathways approaches for low-income adults (aged 26+) for a chance to win $100,000 in prize money.
Over 115 teams applied from around the country and were narrowed down to 10 semi-finalists that pitched their diverse concepts to a panel of experts judges and live audience. Now it is time to bid farewell and celebrate the teams’ rich and timely lessons learned, which are shared in the MTMU Toolkit: A Collection of Place-Based Solutions for Future Adult Career Pathways Models.
During this engaging discussion, you will hear from the teams that participated in the challenge and the project’s key partners—IEL, COABE, and NASDAE—as they discuss how to use the toolkit’s key principles of being adaptable, removing barriers, and maximizing potential to innovate within adult career pathways, even during a pandemic. You will also hear from adult education practitioners who are using the principles to address barriers to online learning, equity inclusion, and other issues exacerbated by COVID-19.
