The Link Between Social Capital, Soft Skills & Networks

What is the opportunity gap and how do the soft skills, social capital and network gaps contribute this gap? What are the consequences to learners, employers and society at large? How does this gap disproportionately impact students of color and those experiencing poverty? How can cross-sector partnerships facilitate solutions to address this gap?

In Bridging the Opportunity Gap, a webinar co-hosted by the Urban Alliance and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we explored the link between social capital and future success.
