Despite historically low unemployment rates, many workers — particularly minorities and women — are being left behind because they don’t have the right skills for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
This skills mismatch means that employers — including those in the Philadelphia area — often have a hard time finding workers to fill open positions.
As technology and automation play increasingly important roles in the workplace, it’s a crucial time to think critically about Philadelphia’s economic future. This is the subject of an upcoming event that will take place on November 6 and 7 at Drexel University.
Business Innovations for the Future of Work is a collaboration between the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia, Drexel University, and the City of Philadelphia. Bringing together local government and business leaders, community organizations, and research experts, the event will explore solutions and highlight public-private partnerships that are changing the way employers approach hiring and retention and ensuring a more inclusive workforce.
The summit will focus on what businesses are doing to invest in workers and the vital role that government and community development organizations can play in creating the resilient workforce of tomorrow.
Visit the event website to learn more about this pivotal discussion about what the future of work means for the economic well-being of Philadelphia and its communities. Although online registration is now closed, tickets are available at the door.-30-
