For many Americans, a central reason that the inequality gap may be getting worse can be summed up in one word: Jobs.
Job openings have been increasing. And yet as we all know – perhaps personally, perhaps from the news, and definitely from the most recent U.S. election –employment prospects for workers left behind by the current economic expansion seem increasingly dim.
Now, there are many causes for this trend, many of which come under fierce debate. One is the skills gap.
As LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner said recently: “Is there a skill gap, is there not a skill gap? I think when you think about it in the aggregate across the United States, you can debate it. But unquestionably, at the local level, there are skills gaps. There are cities that are hiring, they’re hiring quickly. They’ve got fast-growing industries and they don’t have the talent with the requisite skills to take on those roles.”
Jake Schwartz is trying to do something about it.
Jake is CEO of General Assembly, a pioneer in education and career transformation, specializing in today’s most in-demand skills. Specifically, General Assembly bridges the gap between job seekers and companies needing talent with relevant skills. In just about 6 years, they’ve opened 20 campuses on four continents, with more th…

The bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fck and Get Your Sht Together, Sarah Knight, outlines her "NotSorry Method" to stop spending time you don’t have doing things you don’t want to do in her humorous talk.
After fifteen years working in New York City’s top publishing houses,Sarah Knight struck out on her own. Since then, her essay "I Quit My JobToday (And So Can You!)"- went viral, and her book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck: How to Stop Spending Time You Don’t Have with People You Don’t Like Doing Things You Don’t Want to Do", became a bestseller. The escape from corporate life and transformation into an "accidental anti-guru" continued when she and her husband moved to Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. Sarah’s new book explains how to "Get Your Shit Together: How to Stop Worrying About What You Should Do So You Can Finish What You Need to Do and Start Doing What You Want to Do." Sarah graduated cum laude with a degree in English and American Literature from Harvard University.

Amy Hood is currently serving as the Chief Financial Officer at Microsoft Corporation — whose corporate mission is: “Empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more.”
This conversation is so good.
It’s about so much more than her professional accolades and she’s got them: Harvard MBA, undergraduate degree from Duke in economics, being listed at the #44 spot on the Forbes World’s 100 Most Powerful Women list.
This conversation is about her commitment to a full life experience, in all of her roles as a woman — as a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a global citizen — and of course as the CFO of one the most influential technology companies in the world, Microsoft.
If you’ve ever thought, I’m not sure I can do “that” — whatever “that” is in your life — because you’re too far down the tracks, or you’re not sure how to manage something new — or how to make difficult decisions about work/life engagement — or how to not become consumed with chasing outcomes (while at the same time having world-class outcomes as a by product) — or how to help others grow — I think you’re going to love this conversation.
