As Detroit continues to work toward achieving economic equity, improving access to quality job opportunities for the 85 percent of residents without a college degree is key. During this lunch and learn webinar session the author of the Middle-Wage Jobs report will provide an overview of the report which reveals trends and challenges facing Detroit’s middle class and offer best practices to help boost access to good jobs for workers who do not have a college degree.
An example from Fresno D.R.I.V.E California will highlight their comprehensive approach to job creation designed to advance racial equity and expand economic mobility for the city’s historically marginalized populations.
A reaction panel will highlight efforts taking place locally that are working to advance employment equity and discuss ideas to encourage coordinated and collective efforts to improve access to quality job opportunities for Detroiters.
Register today for a webinar discussion which will feature Thom Goff of Mass Economics, Dana Williams of Detroit at Work, Marja Farrow of the Farrow Group, and Christy Patch of Central Valley Community Foundation to share trends, challenges, and opportunities to advance employment equity in Detroit.
