Economic Mobility

We are reviewing all aspects of our organization and the workforce system with an equity lens to identify and remove barriers to employment and ‎advancement opportunities.

To this end, our Programs team has taken numerous steps:

  • Rather than assuming we know what any community wants or needs, we are partnering with a local community group to evaluate workforce system accessibility, inclusivity and other factors and create a way to actively engage with community partners throughout the region to ensure the needs of non-dominant communities are being met.
  • Through our youth career and employment center, Next, we will be seeking individuals with expertise and knowledge of the needs of non-dominant populations to provide culturally competent and inclusive services to youth from those communities.
