Rethinking Workforce Development

How COVID is Changing the Approach to Service Delivery

Over the last year workforce development organizations have not only been adaptive, but innovative. Strategies have been reworked and service delivery altered to meet the needs of jobseekers in a pandemic. We’ll be joined by organizations that have been leaders in creating innovative service delivery, tackling equity issues, and leveraging data to reimagine their community’s workforce programs. Join us to learn best practices and get inspired about what the future of workforce development holds.
