Credentials as Currency: The Future of Skills Liquidity
As the contemporary labor market shifts from an historic reliance on degrees and pedigree toward an emphasis on strengths and abilities, a new currency of digital credentials is emerging with the potential to measure and communicate the unique skills and competencies of job-seekers, creating skills liquidity in the employment market. Armed with more accurate, granular information about what job seekers know and can do, employers are able to shift toward a skills-based hiring paradigm, removing barriers to entry for many would-be employees who have the requisite skills to succeed, but may not have the degree or resume that would otherwise be required, and increasing access and equity for those underserved by the status quo.
In this main stage session from the ASU+GSV Summit 2018, leaders of six organizations deeply involved in the transformation of how skills and learning outcomes are valued in the labor market offer their perspectives, proof points and predictions.
Moderator: Jonathan Finkelstein, Founder + CEO, Credly
Mark Wagner, Vice President of Learning, The Hartford
Chris Jones, Group Chief Executive, City & Guilds Group
Ted Mitchell, President, American Council on Education
Mary Hawkins, President, Bellevue University
- Pamela Tate, President, CAEL
