Thanks to all the presenters and attendees who made the ICCDPP 2015 Symposium a success!

This event brought together world leaders who represent Ministries of Education, Labor, and Youth.

The 2015 theme, Building the Talent Pipeline and Providing Youth with Hope for the Future, focused on the challenges facing governments, employers, and communities to ensure young people have economically viable futures.

By participating in the symposium, world leaders had the opportunity to engage in powerful, detailed discussions with career guidance policy-analysts to create new policies that will have a major impact on issues such as youth unemployment and the disconnect between education and employment.

The 2015 International Symposium had two specific goals:

  • To engage emerging nations in deeper discussions regarding the role of career guidance in the education and employment sectors and its impact on economic development.
  • To facilitate conversations, awareness, and support for youth workforce development initiatives.

The 2015 International Symposium was hosted by Kuder, Inc. in partnership with ICCDPP and was held June 14-17, 2015 in Des Moines, Iowa, USA.
