Childcare challenges, already persistent and complex, have now been further complicated by the COVID-19 public health crisis.
The dates for the U.S. Chamber Foundation's premiere workforce conference have been announced. Save the date for Talent Forward 2020 on October 30, 2020.
As policymakers consider another round of COVID-response legislation, childcare and early education are at the top of mind. Without quality, accessible childcare, employees will be unable to return to work, heavily slowing the restart of our economy.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is partnering with The Hunt Institute to understand the childcare landscape during COVID-19. This presentation will look at the actions that states have taken and the impact on childcare programs’ operations. The presentation will be followed by a discussion on opportunities for state-level engagement to support childcare businesses.
On this webinar we will launch our early childhood education Messaging Guide, share the new data we have gathered, and discuss the insights and tips we've gleaned from it.
At Talent Forward 2019, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's national workforce conference, we will explore how we define leadership at the intersection of work, education, and tech. How can we create the right environment to support the development of new partnerships and encourage change that is disruptive without being destructive? And once we're there, what does success look like? Join us with experts from across industries to discuss these questions and more.
The Fellowship Program consists of two separate, three-day intensive workshops that focus on the history, policy, and programming on topics spanning the education pipeline including early education, K-12, college and career readiness, postsecondary education, and workforce development. The workshops are taught by expert faculty as well as staff from state and local chambers who have put policy into practice to bring change and opportunity to their communities.
