How to spur collective action to support US workers now and prepare them for a new future of work

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

With 44 percent of American workers classified as low-wage and up to one third in vulnerable jobs resulting from the nationwide shutdown, leaders across sectors agree that America’s workforce needs targeted, yet widespread support now. But how can we optimize support for workers in the near term, address the holes in the safety net in the medium term, and build a more inclusive labor market in the long term? What are the roles and responsibilities of local and national governments, funders and the private sector?

Please join us on Friday, April 24th @ 1:00-2:30 PM EST, as our distinguished panel, representing leadership across academia, research, practice, and the private sector, offers cutting edge thinking on what different sectors can do now to support America’s workforce and how we can begin to prepare for potential systemic shifts in the medium-to-long term.
