|Charlotte – Wednesday, September 5th; lunch panel 12:30–2:30pm, exhibition 2:30–5:30pm|
|WHERE:||Tampa – The Cuban Club|
|Charlotte – Ritz-Carlton|
|WHY:||More than 20 million Americans are currently unemployed or underemployed. At the same time, there are more than 3 million jobs that have not been filled because applicants don't have the right skills or training. But there is a real danger that by focusing exclusively on what is not working, we are ignoring what is working -- the opportunities that are available, the surpluses of creativity, ingenuity and compassion that can be poured into job creation.|
|With 15,000 credentialed media present, the conventions in Tampa and Charlotte present a unique opportunity to put the spotlight on solutions, innovative ideas and the men and women who are actually creating jobs. There is nothing left-wing or right-wing about caring for the millions of Americans who are unemployed, or those who are unable to find available jobs because they lack the necessary training.
