"We have to start thinking differently about talent development," says 4A's President and CEO Marla Kaplowitz. "We need to start changing the dynamic within the agencies to shift the overall composition of the talent that's there… and train them in a very different way."

In my Legends & Leadership conversation with Kaplowitz and Catalyte CEO Matt Derella, they explain how the apprenticeship program is delivering for participating agencies by "democratizing opportunities" and leading the industry to identify and attract thousands of candidates who have little exposure to the industry and otherwise no path to job opportunities.
