Dr. Wallace spoke at the US News & World Report STEM Conference yesterday in Baltimore, MD. He was a panelist along with Diane Bell-McKoy, President and CEO, Associated Black Charities, M.Jason Brooke, Chief Executive Officer and General Counsel of Vasoptic Medical, Donald C. Fry, president and Chief Executive Officer of Greater Baltimore Committee, Karl Gumtow, Chief Executive Officer of Cyber point International, and Jeff Salkin (serving as the Moderator) from Maryland Public Television news Anchor.
The topic of the conference was- INDUSTRY OUTLOOK: EXPLORING Tomorrow's Job and Skills.
When Mr. Salkin asked: "What would you tell the educational institutions about the skills of their graduates?"
Dr. Wallace passionately responded that they need to teach to the future. "Don't teach to the past of the present. They need to teach the students to be prepared for where the jobs are going to be. Engineering schools need teach engineering students how to be entrepreneurs."
