Research for Equity in Recovery Webinar series

Posted by Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on June 30, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is also a job reallocation shock. It could leave a mass of displaced workers with the wrong skills. Join us for a webinar that will explore the job training needs in the post-pandemic recovery and how job training can provide displaced workers with the skills needed in the new economy. You will learn about research and best practices in the field from workforce development experts.

This webinar is the first in a series, Research for Equity in Recovery. This series will focus on up-to-date research and successful strategies to promote a strong and equitable recovery from the pandemic. This series is co-hosted by the Philadelphia Fed’s Community Development and Regional Outreach Department, the Upjohn Institute, and the Penn Institute for Urban Research.

Don’t miss out. Participation is free, but registration is required. Registration will close at 5 p.m. ET on June 30.  Register for the July 1st session here.
