Webinar: Public Viewpoint Survey: COVID-19 Impact by Job Field – May 6

Posted by Strada Education Network on May 5, 2020

The COVID-19 crisis has left millions of Americans without work. As workers struggle to adapt, millions will be looking to reskill, change jobs—or even change careers. The Public Viewpoint survey is collecting some early signals about the fields most affected as well as who is looking to reskill and how they want education and training to be delivered.

This week’s webinar is the third in a series based on our ongoing weekly survey that tracks individuals’ perspectives about their work, education, and lives. The intent is to help employers, educators, policymakers, and communities map a path forward that meets the needs and expectations of Americans.

Date and Time: Wednesday, May 6, 2-3 p.m.

Join Strada Center for Consumer Insights Director of Research Andrew Hanson for a briefing about the latest findings with these panelists:

  • Maria Flynn, president and CEO at JFF, a national nonprofit seeking to drive change in the American workforce and education systems to promote economic advancement for all.
  • Rob Sentz, chief innovation officer at EMSI, which provides labor market data to professionals in higher education, economic development, workforce development, talent acquisition, and site selection.
