Podcast Overview   

Welcome to Work Forces, the bi-weekly podcast revolutionizing how we think about the future of work and learning. Hosted by workforce and education strategists and thought leaders Julian Alssid and Kaitlin LeMoine, Work Forces dives deep with the innovators shaping the future of workforce development and career preparation. Through insightful conversations centering on innovative higher ed and workforce development models, cross-sector collaborations, and emerging new technology, Julian, Kaitlin, and their guests discuss practical solutions that can be scaled and sustained to meet the demands of tomorrow’s workforce and learning environments.

Background  

In the summer of 2023, Julian and Kaitlin began a listening tour to discuss the most pressing needs and challenges faced by leaders in the fields of higher education, workforce development, and education technology to inform their consulting practice. Work Forces emerged organically from those discussions and both informs and is supported by Julian and Kaitlin’s consulting projects and writing.

The goal of Work Forces is to discuss and disseminate new strategies and ideas that can positively shape the future of work and learning. We use the following framework to guide our selection of podcast guests and the topics discussed.

"When a new Work Forces episode comes out it's the first one I click! Fantastic guests plus free-ranging but thought-provoking conversations with hosts who are asking the big questions about issues many want to solve - I come away from each quick episode with more nuance, new ideas, and a deeper appreciation of this unique intersection of solutions + stakeholders."
