Ask Us Anything: Infrastructure Job Programs Creating Career Opportunities for People of Color, Women, and Youth - March 3, 2021
Mar 03, 2021
The Biden administration is expected to propose an infrastructure modernization plan that could spur hefty job creation. Workplace practitioners Kisha Bird of the Center for Law and Social Policy, Mary Alice McCarthy of New America, and Brad Markell of the AFL-CIO’s Working for America Institute discuss ways to make sure that traditionally underprivileged populations, particularly youth, people of color, and women, will connect with employment opportunities from infrastructure investments. Carl Van Horn, director of the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, moderates the discussion.
