Creating an Equitable, Resilient Workforce
America needs a dynamic and inclusive workforce system equipped to address long-standing structural inequities in our labor market. We need a workforce system that’s resourced to give workers and businesses with access to the skills training they need so workers, businesses, and our economy are resilient in the face of current and future economic shifts. And we need a workforce system that creates pathways to quality jobs so that every worker and industry can thrive.
Making College Work
Many of our nation’s higher education policies – some developed over fifty years ago – don't meet the needs of today’s students or the rapidly changing skill needs of today’s labor market. The new student majority on college campuses is made up of working people, adult learners, students of color, first-generation college students, immigrants, parents—students who don’t fit the mold around which our higher education system was originally built.
Join us as we help more states and Congress make college work for America’s workers and businesses.
Digital Equity @ Work
America needs a national policy strategy for digital equity at work. A strategy that guarantees foundational digital skills for all, lifelong upskilling for current workers, and rapid re-skilling for those who’ve lost their job during the pandemic.Learn More
