On June 25, Joint Center Workforce Policy Director Dr. Alex Camardelle joined the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s “Policy Summit 2021: Pathways to Economic Resilience in Our Communities” for a deep dive policy discussion on workforce development amid the COVID-19 pandemic and moving forward. The Fund for Our Economic Future Job Preparation Director Bishara Addison joined him for the conversation.
The full description is as follows: “There is no way to sugarcoat it: The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought havoc on our workforce. Entire industries had to change the way they operated, 22 million jobs were lost, and too many workers were forced to choose between safety and work. This session highlights critical policy considerations that will impact the conditions for our workforce now and into the future.”
