Nearly all industries have an international component, from selling goods and services abroad to using tools of the trade made in other countries.
In this roundtable event, our panelists discuss the skills that employers working across borders seek, and how educational institutions prepare learners for those jobs. Following brief statements by each guest speaker, an extended Q&A session will give the audience an opportunity to address their own interests.
