Our Leadership Forum brings together business, education and government leaders to explore issues related to early learning and school readiness. The 2015 Leadership Forum, Building 21st Century Workforce Skills: Supporting Digital Literacy, focused on digital literacy, from cradle to college to career. It was made possible through the generous support of program sponsors Boeing and Sevatec, Inc.
Past forums have focused on the economics of investing in programs for young children, the latest research on brain development and learning, and the importance of incorporating science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in early childhood education programs.
Fairfax Futures also hosts occasional business briefings on the economics of public investment in early childhood education.
"We put a premium on educational achievement here. Our economic future is very much dependent on the success of our investment in early childhood learning."
— U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly, 11th District of Virginia
