Recording: Maximizing Federal Policy Support for Learners, Mar 8, 2023

Millions of Americans are encountering barriers to entry into family-sustaining careers. Starting in K-12, students need to focus on skills and gain real-world experience and policymakers. Employers and educators need to build the support and infrastructure to support them, including through comprehensive wraparound services. With an influx of recent funding available for education and training providers and employers who are focused on expanding access to high-quality jobs, how is the Biden Administration trying to capitalize and expand economic opportunity for all?

Join senior leaders from the US Departments of Education and Commerce as we hear more about their priorities and approach.
