The Horizons summit is JFF’s signature national event, where we reimagine the workforce and education landscape through inspiring conversations and interactive experiences with thought leaders in our fields. Horizons is a forum for innovative thinking—with a bias toward action. Our attendees engage in big ideas that will drive economic advancement for all.
The safety of our attendees is our top priority. To attend the Horizons Summit, you must either present proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 per CDC guidelines (single dose of J&J vaccine or both initial doses of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine – booster not required) OR proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test (taken with 72 hrs. of arrival) or antigen test (administered by a registered health official within 24 hrs. of arrival). At-home antigen tests will not be accepted.
Jobs for the Future as always, is following guidance from local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large gatherings. All residents and visitors to the City of New Orleans should take personal responsibility to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, by assessing the individual risk of attending large and/or crowded gatherings, considering face coverings in public, and staying up to date on vaccinations.
We encourage you to consult CDC and other public health guidance and wear a mask as you feel comfortable. We will also have onsite hand sanitizer, extra masks, rapid tests, and other health items for the safety and comfort of our attendees.
