Fred Humphries, Vice President, U.S. Government Affairs, Microsoft, posted to Microsoft on the Issues this morning about a partnership with National Journal and The Atlantic to host town halls at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions around issues facing America’s young and emerging workforce.
Conversations with the Next Generation
Humphries said:

“This summer, the people of the United States will look to Charlotte and Tampa as political leaders from across the country gather to lay out their vision for the future. Younger voters in particular have a stake in the course that will be charted in each city. They remain a pivotal voting block for the candidate who will best address their issues and concerns regarding jobs, education, political accountability and how to face the nation’s biggest challenges.

On August 29 and September 5, Microsoft, in partnership with National Journal and The Atlantic, will host Conversations with the Next Generation Town Halls at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, respectively, that will bring together our nation’s top leaders for a dialogue on the important issues facing America's young and emerging workforce.”
