"While nearly 200 million people across the world are unemployed, multinational companies are struggling with jobs that remain vacant. Yet the inability to fill jobs is not only due to geographic imbalances in supply and demand but also due to large skill gaps between the needs of the 21st century economy and the output of the education systems", comments Ana C. Rold, Editor-in-Chief, Diplomatic Courier.

Sponsored by Diplomatic Courier, STEMconnector, and CumberlandCenter, the forum is designed to explore needed growth across government and business ecosystems through social and human capital, and the growing global war for talent.

"When you think of human capital as a global marketplace, I see two things: Firstly, human capital is the worlds most wasted resource". said Lucian Tarnowski, BraveNewTalent founder and CEO, “Secondly, the gap between demand of human capital and supply of human capital is growing wider every day. We can see the formal education system as the worlds largest failing middleman.”

Tarnowski believes that technology can provide a solution by opening up access to professional learning, allowing companies to train and develop people with needed skills. Tarnowski will speak during the Skills Gap panel session, at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time, on Tuesday, January 14, 2013.

In addition to BraveNewTalent, the Talent Mobility and the Future Of Jobs forum will feature speakers from organizations including Wal-Mart, Sodexo, PepsiCo, and the US Chamber of Commerce.
