Northwest Missouri State University President Dr. John Jasinski is among a select group of leaders chosen to participate in the Age of Agility Summit – a gathering of business leaders, education experts and policymakers engaging in solution-oriented discussion about restructuring how education is delivered – when the nationally touring event stops June 14 at the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center.

Jasinski will join other education leaders as a member of a panel sharing education success stories. The panel, moderated by the Kauffman Foundation, begins at 11 a.m. and will feature each panelist delivering a TED-style presentation; the panelists will then participate in a discussion and Q&A with audience members.

Hosted by America Succeeds, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute, among others, the Age of Agility Summit is part of a multi-city national tour designed to generate actionable strategies and tactics to improve and modernize education, training, and workforce preparedness in each state. The event will be recorded and portions will be accessible in the Age of Agility Resource Bank at ageofagility.org

America Succeeds’ mission is to elevate and expand the business voice for the dramatic and continuous improvement of public education. In 2017, the organization released “The Age of Agility: Education Pathways for the Future of Work,” which provides stories and data about the rapidly changing workplace.
