The pandemic and its economic effect disproportionality impacted communities of color. Upskilling and reskilling displaced black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) workers and others left behind for high-wage careers through meaningful credentialing programs can be a meaningful community response to the current needs for talent and build long-term economic resilience. If chambers do not support workers and employers in adapting to the new realities of work and education, they risk leaving a large swath of the most disadvantaged communities in their communities behind. Listen to this webinar to learn how two communities are planning to equip BIPOC students with in-demand, industry-recognized credentials that can lead to career advancement. Speakers shared where they are in the work and some initial challenges faced.
