How the Workforce System Can Advance Workplace Health and Safety During and After the Pandemic – Job Quality in Practice Webinar
Across the nation, workforce development professionals are making efforts to help workers connect to jobs and provide for their families amidst concerns about workplace health and safety during the pandemic. And the risks to health and safety are not distributed equally. Due to occupational segregation and other factors rooted in structural racism, Black, Indigenous, and people of color are more likely to endure severe health consequences from the virus and to be concentrated in frontline jobs with high levels of exposure.

In this webinar, panelists will share about the crucial role workforce development professionals can play in advancing workplace health and safety, including through direct engagement with employers and partnerships with local advocacy organizations. Panelists will also discuss how these strategies can be applied to other job quality areas and ways public and philanthropic funders can support this critical work.

Our speakers include Hugo Avila (Coordinator of Business Services, SERCO), Christopher Dews (Policy Advocate, Job Opportunities Task Force), and Clair Minson (Founder and Principal Consultant, Sandra Grace LLC), with recorded remarks from Daniel Castro (Employment Specialist, The HOPE Program).
