Time:  2-3 p.m. CT | 3-4 p.m. ET
Location:  Webinar

Workers and employers in the United States face new realities and uncertainties that current public workforce policies and programs were not designed to address. The Great Recession and other disruptive forces have altered the environment for workers, job seekers, businesses, educational institutions and government. How can the workforce system be reimagined to address this evolving economy?

We'll explore this question during this Connecting Communities® webinar, which will be driven by a discussion of Transforming U.S. Workforce Development Policies for the 21st Century, a new publication from the Federal Reserve banks of Atlanta and Kansas City, and the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development.

Speakers include:

  • Larry Good, Corporation for a Skilled Workforce, who will draw on his chapter, Reimagining Workforce Policy in the United States, to explore new program and funding models to align workforce investments with the needs of an economy in transformation.
  • Anthony Carnevale, Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, who will outline how a learning-labor exchange could help students and institutions adapt to the new realities of the U.S. labor market, based on his chapter, Learn and Earn: Connecting Education to Careers in the 21st Century.
  • Steve Hendrickson, Boeing Co., who will provide an additional perspective on the changes and opportunities presented, based on his roles with and expertise in business and the public workforce system.

Participation in this webinar is free; however, registration is required. Register for this session at the Connecting Communities website.
