Update: This event is being rescheduled for November. Please check back for an update in the coming weeks.
Join me on Thursday, October 27 at 10am MT/12pm ET for a discussion with Stephen Goldsmith, urban affairs and digital technology expert, and Kate Markin Coleman, social sector expert, on their new book – Growing Fairly: How to Build Opportunity and Equity in Workforce Development.
The labor market in the United States faces seemingly contradictory challenges: Many employers have trouble finding qualified applicants for open positions, while millions of Americans are out of work or are underemployed—their paths to living-wage jobs blocked by systemic barriers or lack of adequate skills. In their upcoming book, Growing Fairly: How to Build Opportunity and Equity in Workforce Development, Coleman and Goldsmith discuss workforce development reforms that meet the needs of both workers and employers.
