Teach to Work [audio] with Patty Alper

On this episode we ask: Do college graduates have the necessary skills needed to enter the workforce? 

And, if they don’t, what can we as leaders do about it?

As a leader (in any capacity), you’ve likely encountered a college graduate applying for a position that they are highly qualified for…at least on paper, but rarely are prepared for in the real world. 

So how can we effectively prepare the next generation for the jobs of tomorrow?  

Well stay tuned because we are about to find out! 

Our guest on this episode is… Patty Alper. She is the president of the Alper Portfolio Group, a marketing and consulting company. She is also a board member of both the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (N.F.T.E) and US-2020, the White House initiative to build mentorship in STEM careers. 

A trustee of the Alper Family Foundation for the last 18 years, Patty’s unique approach to philanthropic giving and entrepreneurial mentorship has been featured in The New York Times, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, TIME, and Philanthropy Magazine.
