About Horizons

The Horizons summit is where we explore the newest ideas for transforming the field and center the voices of the people most impacted by the transformation.

By attending our flagship summit, listening to our podcast, or watching our video series, you’re connecting with thinkers and innovators who have joined Jobs for the Future’s journey toward our North Star: In 10 years, 75 million people facing systemic barriers to advancement will work in quality jobs.
We realize our North Star is ambitious. To activate equity and seize the next frontier of equitable economic advancement, we need the power of employers. We need the power of policymakers. We need the power of philanthropists, thought leaders, changemakers, and innovators. We need The Power of Us.
