Minds That Move Us: an Innovation Story

Minds That Move Us
Adult Career Pathways Festival
August 6-8, 2019

From August 6-8, 2019, the Adult Career Pathways Festival took place in Miami and brought together prominent policymakers, funders, business leaders and adult career pathway innovators, all genuinely engaged in exploring and creating innovations that would help the 23.4 million working-age adults in this country who need additional support launching and advancing their careers.

Last year, Minds that Move Us selected ten elite teams from around the country to spend a year developing innovative education and training models that create social equity and economic mobility for adult learners.

At the festival, the teams pitched their ideas to a panel of expert judges and a live audience for a chance to win $100k! The festival also included engaging panel discussions by career pathways experts with an optional pre-event Learning Journey to visit premier programs at Miami Dade College. Additionally, Every Day Job Heroes who changed lives by helping adults in their communities to prepare for, find or keep jobs were recognized. Support for the event was provided by ECMC Foundation, Dollar General Literacy Foundation, and JPMorgan Chase & Co.
