On Thursday, October 6, at 10 a.m. ET, The Pew Research Center, in association with the Markle Foundation, will publish a major new report on the state of American jobs. The report, based on a national survey of more than 5,000 adults, examines how shifts in the economy are impacting American workers.

In a special presentation at the Close It Summit, Markle Director Faiza Issa will reveal key survey findings about how Americans assess their job situation today and their prospects for the future; the skills workers think are most important; whether they feel properly equipped to do their jobs well; the importance they place on continued training; and who bears the greatest responsibility for getting workers the skills they need.

Markle's Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer Wan-Lae Cheng and Executive Director (Skillful Colorado) Andi Rugg are also participating in other events at the Close It Summit.
