Retail isn’t just about folding sweaters or running a cash register. Join Adam Lukoskie, vice president of the NRF Foundation, for this engaging session that busts common myths about working in the retail industry and the careers it launches. Hear stories about people who began on the sales floor, then leveraged the fundamental skills they learned for fulfilling careers ranging from supply chain logistics and loss prevention to marketing and cybersecurity. Learn from an industry that employs over 42 million Americans how the workplace has evolved and what skills are required to be competitive and successful. Leave this session informed and inspired by the success stories of executives whose careers began in retail.

Through its RISE Up credential program, the NRF Foundation and its training partners create a path for workers to land jobs by furthering their education and gaining the necessary skills to thrive in retail and beyond.
