Creating the Inclusive Workforce of the Future
The nature of work continues to change rapidly, and the national dialogue calling for meaningful racial justice reform, coupled with COVID-19, has only accelerated this change in the last year. These events have created job displacement and an increased demand for technical and essentially human skills like problem-solving, empathy, and creativity. Organizations must build alternative talent models to meet these challenges. By actively engaging historically marginalized populations — including survivors of trafficking, recently incarcerated individuals, and refugees — organizations can access untapped talent to meet evolving workforce needs and reimagine work itself. This session looks at how organizations can engage with these populations and the value they bring to the Future of Work.
