Credentialing Workers of Color

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.
