The long-term changes in the labor market that were accelerated by the Great Recession have disproportionately impacted low income populations served by job training programs. For example a significant number of the high-wage jobs lost in the Great Recession have been replaced by low-wage jobs in many growth sectors of the economy. As a result, stronger, more intensive job training programs are needed to support mobility and stability for low-income populations. One of the areas of promise is the integration of financial capability strategies into high-quality workforce programs.
Join our panel of leading financial capability intermediaries and high performing workforce programs in a discussion about promising strategies that have the potential to improve outcomes for program participants.
