Joint Center Workforce Policy Director Featured in Associated Black Charities’ Equity First Webinar

Dr. Alex Camardelle, director of the Workforce Policy Program at the Joint Center, joined Associated Black Charities’ immediate past President and CEO Diane Bell-McKoy as the first guest for the Equity First speaker series in 2022.

This webinar highlights key leaders from across the nation who recognize that sustainable change for people of color will only come when structural and institutional barriers are replaced with equitable policies, practices, and institutions.

According to Dr. Camardelle, “you may hear things about the promising labor market and how well it’s doing, but you often don’t hear disaggregated by race and ethnicity. So we stand in that gap and make sure that we’re talking about what these numbers mean for Black folks. ”
