BCG at the 2024 ASU+GSV Summit

Our education, workforce, and care economy experts will be on the ground at this year’s ASU+GSV Summit to explore how generative AI will shape future careers, why upskilling is so critical, and what companies must do to embrace this evolution.

As a sponsor of the 2024 ASU+GSV Summit, BCG is joining educators, investors, industry leaders, and entrepreneurs from around the world to tackle issues surrounding education, employability, and the workforce. We help institutions understand the jobs of the future, and we collaborate with organizations to orient their programming, talent, and infrastructure toward a brighter tomorrow.
