Supporting Upward Mobility for Deskless Workers

Mar 4, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Deskless workers are critical to the economy, yet their learning & development is dramatically underinvested. Investing in these workers not only empowers an essential segment of the workforce, it supports a stronger overall U.S. economy. Deskless workers often lack equitable access to technology, resources, & opportunities compared to their office-based counterparts. Many rely on personal mobile devices to stay connected to colleagues and complete tasks on the go. This panel explores innovative learning strategies to enhance upward mobility for frontline, deskless, and middle-skill workers.
