Webcast: The Future of Work and the Workforce – Nov 17

Posted by Brookings on November 16, 2021

The Biden administration is working to pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill and the Build Back Better Agenda, which they say will deliver universal high-speed broadband coverage to all Americans, create good jobs, expand workforce development, and accelerate economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Department of Labor will play a vital role in implementing the legislation and allocating federal funding to help American families and move the country forward.

The Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings will host the U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh for an in-depth conversation on the future of work and the American workforce. Secretary Walsh and Brookings Senior Fellow Nicol Turner Lee will discuss policies to help reorient the labor force to existing market demands and cultivate a 21st-century workforce, ensure the economy produces good jobs for all workers, and address issues of equity and inclusion that are critical for historically marginalized populations like people of color, rural Americans, and workers with limited formal education.

This event will take place on Wednesday, November 17 at 10 a.m. EST.
