Our talent development process is outdated. We are putting students into programs that have little to no connectivity to the world of work and job seekers are using a 500 year old resume.

Jason Green is an experienced entrepreneur, lawyer, and strategist that has focused his career to empower individuals and communities.

Green co-founded and serves as Senior Vice President for Business Development and General Counsel for SkillSmart, a technology company that uses skills to connect employers, job seekers, and education providers to increase transparency and reform the talent development pipeline.

Immediately prior to this endeavor, Green served as Special Assistant to the President and Associate Counsel to President Obama, where he advised on legal, economic and domestic policy matters. Prior to joining the White House Counsel’s Office, Green served as the National Voter Registration Director for the 2008 Obama for America general campaign, and held several leadership positions in battleground states during the 2008 primary campaign.
