Improving workforce development and STEM education 

Twelfth annual John Hazen White Forum on Public Policy

Thursday, July 27, 2023, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EDT

America needs more workers to staff its technology sector, provide STEM expertise, and expand the digital economy. Right now, there are shortages in many technical areas, limiting the country's ability to remain competitive and preserve the innovation edge that is crucial to future prosperity.  

On July 27, as part of the twelfth annual John Hazen White Forum on Public Policy, Governance Studies at Brookings will host a panel discussion to explore how the United States can improve workforce development and enhance STEM expertise. Experts will discuss ideas for boosting education and prioritizing lifelong learning. This forum convenes leaders from academia, business, and government to discuss and identify solutions to the United States’ most pressing challenges. 

Viewers can submit questions for speakers by emailing or via Twitter @BrookingsGov using #STEMWorkforce.
