A stronger workforce supports a stronger economy. This national conference aims to connect businesses, government agencies, nonprofits, academics, financial institutions and philanthropic organizations to:

  • Reframe workforce development efforts as investments, not just social services
  • Attract new resources and leverage existing funding sources
  • Improve economic mobility and impact for workers
