Join us for a discussion with the Fiscal Policy Institute (FPI), the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies (FPWA) and the Human Services Council (HSC) about an exciting new project to develop a sector-wide career ladder program for 80,000 workers, predominantly women of color, employed by non-profits providing a wide range of human services under contract to the City of New York.
Advocacy efforts by a broad-based nonprofit coalition spearheaded by these three groups secured $5 million in the City’s FY 2016 budget to support the initial development of such a career ladder program. FPI, FPWA and HSC have started to work with the City to establish a sector partnership to inform the development of a sector-wide education and workforce training system, to discuss how to solicit input from the workforce, and to begin discussions with possible education and training providers.
This session will describe the career challenges facing this workforce, as well as the staffing and organizational needs of the non-profit sector, and will discuss the initial development strategy the three groups are pursuing in conjunction with the City.
