Last Wednesday in Tampa during the RNC, The Huffington Post held the first of our two-part panel discussion on job creation. Moderated by Tom Brokaw, the panel surfaced a number of viable ideas and potential solutions to the job crisis, one that sees more than 20 million Americans unemployed or underemployed.
Today, HuffPost is hosting the second part of the series, in Charlotte during the DNC. Watch here for a live blog of the proceedings, featuring the posts, tweets, and photos of students from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and Lynn University.
The panel is being moderated by NBC News' Tom Brokaw and features: Allen Blue (Co-founder, LinkedIn), Scott Case (CEO, Startup America), Gerald Chertavian (CEO, Year Up), Rosario Dawson (Founder, Voto Latino and Actress), Jeremy Heimans (CEO, Purpose), Walter Isaacson (CEO, Aspen Institute), Michael Porter (Professor, Harvard Business School), Judith Rodin (CEO, Rockefeller Foundation), Brad Smith (General Counsel, Microsoft), Andrew Yang (CEO, Venture for America) and Arianna Huffington (Editor-in-Chief, Huffington Post).
The lunch and panel discussion will take place from 12:30-2:30 ET. Watch the event above and the discussion below.
