Facing Digitalization: A Workforce at Risk

Recording: Facing Digitalization: A Workforce at Risk, Mar 10, 2019

The digitalization of the workplace means that technology skills are no longer a premium, but a necessity. This leaves behind a workforce that lacks the digital skills to compete in jobs that used to require none like cashiers, servers and grocery baggers, with communities of color disproportionately affected in some job areas. This panel features those leading the work to find solutions for equipping underserved communities with the skills necessary to succeed in tomorrow’s economy.
