The Annual Breakfast audience consists of corporate leaders and local government representatives with interests in an educated workforce and regional economic development. It will be a valuable conversation about Georgia’s commitment to the future of a literate, educated workforce.

Why Is This Issue Important?
 
Close to 24 million U.S. adults in the current workforce population lack the basic literacy and numeracy skills to enter middle-skill training and obtain higher paying jobs. In Georgia, over 1.3 million adults over 25 do not have a high school diploma. Advancing literacy leads to higher employment rates, lowering incarceration, higher post-secondary enrollment, reduced healthcare costs, and increased economic mobility. Of Georgia’s adults living with low literacy, 58 percent are employed in construction, manufacturing, restaurant and retail industries. As these jobs continue to be replaced by robotics and automation, fewer positions will be available to adults with low literacy who will struggle to develop new, marketable skills.
