Ask Us Anything: Infrastructure Job Programs Creating Career Opportunities for People of Color, Women, and Youth
Join us for a conversation on the career opportunities for people of color, women, and opportunity youth through the Biden administration’s Infrastructure Job Program. Our guest speakers include Mary Alice McCarthy, director of the Center on Education and Skills for New America; Kisha Bird, director of Youth Policy at CLASP; and Brad Markell, executive director of the AFL-CIO Working for America Institute. Carl Van Horn, distinguished professor of public policy at Rutgers University and director of the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, will moderate the panel. The group will discuss the Biden administration’s Build Back Better plan for economic recovery, including “historic investments in infrastructure.” The conversation will answer questions about how these programs can incorporate a focus on racial and gender equity.
This webinar will be the first of five webinars in 2021 discussing the Build Back Better plan proposed by the Biden administration.
