Talent Forward: Breaking Childcare Barriers

Even before the COVID-19 public health crisis, finding quality, affordable childcare was a barrier to the workforce for many working parents. The pandemic exacerbated numerous issues in an already fragile childcare system and a lack of childcare options presents a significant roadblock for parents to re-enter the workforce. There is no silver bullet to solve this problem but the need to create a childcare system to fully support working parents and the businesses in which they work has never been clearer. Join us for the next event in the Talent Forward virtual series as we address how state and federal governments, the business community, and childcare providers can collaborate to provide effective solutions.
2020 School Boards Report
Local school governance has routinely been left out of discussions about education, and school boards often function with little oversight from the communities they serve. Even those who are aware of the role school boards play often don’t know how they can help. Yet, school boards have significant power and authority over the quality of education in our schools.

Talent Forward

On this episode of Talent Forward, we will focus on creating equitable pathways into the workforce. The pandemic has been particularly disruptive for women and people of color. We will discuss real solutions for students and workers, particularly for these groups, to support their entry, or re-entry, to career opportunities.
