The Hearing: Episode 81 – Stanley Litow (P-TECH)

The achievements of this episode’s guest have been celebrated by the Council on Foreign Relations, Harvard Business Review, The Economist, The New York Times, Forbes, and Wired. Joe Raczynski is talking to the founder of P-TECH, and author of Breaking Barriers, Stan Litow.

They begin by discussing Stan’s early career—working for the mayor of New York City—which opened his eyes to issues in the education system. This stuck with Stan through roles in public service, the not-for-profit sector and into IBM—where he created “the private sector version of a Peace Corps”.

P-TECH is a global programme that blends high school with higher education and on-the-job learning. It bridges the gap between employment and academic systems that lack the provision of workplace skills. These opportunities are available to all students, regardless of race or financial status, in a way that benefits the private sector as well as society.

This episode is for lawyers who want to see change in the industry but aren’t sure where to start.
