Why a Symposium on Ignorance?
How does ignorance of climate change, poverty, education, inclusion, healthcare, and other global challenges impact us as professionals in learning and development, talent development, and credentialing? The focus of the Symposium is on these macro level trends and how they are affecting the education, training, credentialing, and talent practices of our employers and client organizations (government, military, and the private sector). The value added is to better equip you to get your employers or clients to understand how they should be leveraging you, their training, education, and credentialing assets as part of their strategic reactions to these macro-level trends. Our position is that failure to do so constitutes not just a missed opportunity but an act of willful ignorance (denial) about what it takes to get our constituents ready to embrace and respond effectively to the macro trends. We see willful ignorance as often the line of least resistance, which ultimately allows each of the macro trends to turn into existential threats. How can we impact these problems? Too often we avoid the conversation because of the political implications. This made sense in the past, but no longer. Ignoring ignorance is just feeding many of these continuing world-wide issues.
We are on the from-lines. We have the greatest opportunity beyond our schools to have a positive effect on how people think and consider the world around them. We also have a responsibility to foster good critical thinking skills and evidence-based practices.
This Symposium explores how better rigor in thinking and more accountability among us can change the world for the better. Each speaker explores a specific global challenge and how we can think about that problem from a multi-disciplinary and critical perspective. We then will engage in how we can apply what the speaker shared practically to each of your own worlds.
Who is this Symposium for?
You, if you want to shape the conversation. Events over the past two years magnified our global interdependence, the power and threat of technology, the pervasiveness of institutionalized ignorance, and the clout of social media. We are witnessing a war on science and critical thinking. Talking about Post-Covid is still a long way off and growth at any cost can no longer be the goal. We must help others comprehend the social, environmental, and economic forces that are shaping the global marketplace. But it begins with us, otherwise we will be left out of the conversation.
The Symposium occurs over a 18 hour period, but it is in parts to better enable participation by a global audience. The whole program is virtual and live. It is also recorded. All parts will have speakers addressing this year's themes; however, the specific content and speakers will be different.
