Connecting People to Jobs

2 p.m. - 3 p.m.
Online
Topic: Education & Preparation
Audiences: Educators, Policymakers, Students

Registration has closed. Thank you for your interest.

Getting a degree or a certificate is one thing—getting a job is another, particularly given the uncertainty around where the labor market is headed. Educators and community and business leaders will share strategies to connect people to in-demand jobs.

Video is temporarily unavailable.

This event is part two of the two-part District Dialogues series finale, which will address the effects of educational disparities and COVID-19 on student outcomes beyond high school, including college enrollment and entrance into the workforce.

For more information on part one of the series finale, including agenda and featured speakers, visit the Session 5: After High School event page. Part one will immediately precede the part two premiere on Wednesday, May 5. Registrants will receive a single link to view both parts of the finale on the Richmond Fed YouTube channel.

 

Who Should Attend


This series is open to anyone interested in the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on education, including educators, school administrators, state and local policymakers, workforce development professionals, and community and business leaders.
