Location: Virtual

The national launch of Workforce Realigned: How New Partnerships Are Advancing Economic Mobility, a book from the Federal Reserve Banks of Atlanta and Philadelphia and Social Finance, will be a 90-minute virtual program. The event will explore the emergence of a new generation of cross-sectoral partnerships focused on better outcomes for workers. It will draw on examples from the recently released book (and beyond) and highlight efforts to build a better workforce system through shared accountability, aligned incentives, and a more careful and thoughtful allocation of financial risks across workers, employers, and governments.
