Map and Directions

The 2017 Western Pathways Conference is uniquely focused on an issue central to the future of our economy and society: how can we build an education and workforce development system that will prepare ALL young adults for careers leading to economic independence? This will be an action oriented conference in which teams from the participating states will work together to develop plans for addressing such issues as the skills gap, strengthening connections between business and education, providing high-quality career development and career pathways, and much more. The Western Pathways Conference will attract national leaders from business, education, government and philanthropy to share knowledge, experience, ideas, and best practices.The Conference is organized and hosted by the Global Pathways Institute at Arizona State University in partnership with the Colorado Business Roundtable, Education Commission of the States, Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education, and Business-Higher Education Forum.

The Global Pathways Institute at Arizona State University hosted the 2015 and 2016 Southwest Pathways Conferences in Scottsdale, Arizona. Last year's conference attracted 500 participants from 28 states and over 90% of surveyed attendees said they would recommend that a colleague attend this year's conference. Because of this success and the requests from states outside of the Southwest to get involved, the Global Pathways Institute and our partners have expanded the conference to include all 19 western states.
