As COVID-19 radically changes every aspect of our work, it's more important than ever to gather as learning institutions, employers and workforce economic developers to collaborate, build and sustain pathways for learning and career growth for adults all across the country. In times of uncertainty, CAEL is providing solutions with free registration for all members to the 2020 CAEL conference.

CALLING FOR A GLOBAL CONVENING OF
LEADERS, EXPERTS AND CHANGEMAKERS

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the CAEL Conference has been reimagined as a virtual event, free to all CAEL members. We'll gather as one community, risk-free, to chart the course to recovery where every adult has a pathway to lifelong learning and meaningful work.

2020 KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

heathermHeather McGowan

ADJUNCT PROFESSOR, CENTRE FOR THE NEW WORKFORCE AT SWINBURNE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY 

“The coronavirus has acted as an accelerant in our transformation to digital. Within two weeks of the World Health Organization declaring this a global pandemic, entire companies transitioned to distributed workforces while full school systems from K-12 through higher ed and learning and development organizations converted to online learning. This is incredible adaptation at scale showing us a glimmer of what we are capable of doing.”

 

Sarah Ancelsaraha

FOUNDER AND CEO AT STUDENT-READY STRATEGIES

“As a result of the global pandemic, millions of adults are finding themselves unemployed or underemployed. Many of them will turn to higher education as a path to a credential and better job opportunities, and it’s imperative that institutions are ready to support them. I’m excited to share strategies that will help colleges and universities put needed structures in place, making it possible for more adult learners to meet their academic goals and get back into the workforce.”

As we face rebuilding post COVID-19, there's never been a more important time for the mission of this conference.
