Joint Center Hosts Roundtable Discussion on Short-Term Job Training for Black Workers

On July 28, the Joint Center held an invitation-only roundtable discussion on short-term job training. The event brought together the expertise of funders, researchers, organizers, and others interested in amplifying opportunities to strengthen training policies so that they do a better job to improve economic mobility for Black workers. Perspectives from participants will contribute to a set of race-forward principles that federal and state decision-makers should consider for WIOA reauthorization, the American Jobs and Families Plan, and other state and local workforce recovery policies.
