Why Can’t We Fill Our Jobs?
Workforce Development in Greater Boston
We have all been reading about the economic boom in Boston with the growing technology and health sectors and enviable low unemployment rate. We are also faced with the unpleasant reality that this economic opportunity continues to leave people behind, while at the same time, jobs in these growing sectors are going unfilled. What is the outlook for closing this gap? What will it take to match people who need good jobs with good jobs that are available? What should we be doing differently to prepare our high school and community college students for the changing job scene?
Join us on January 16 at our next Philanthropy Dialogue to learn about this urgent challenge. Our panelists include an expert in the workforce development “system” and two of our grantees who are considered “best in class” among the non-profits working on this important problem.
