The Western Pathways Conference focuses on innovative and effective solutions to the most pressing challenges in education and workforce development.

The Western Pathways Conference is uniquely focused on an issue central to the future of our economy and society: how can we build an education and workforce development system that will prepare ALL young adults for careers leading to economic independence? 

The upcoming 2020 Conference in Kansas City will be an action oriented event in which teams from the participating states will work together to develop plans for addressing such issues as the skills gap, strengthening connections between business and education, providing high-quality career development and career pathways, and much more. The Western Pathways Conference attracts national leaders from business, education, government and philanthropy to share knowledge, experience, ideas, and best practices.
