Community Insight Session: Economic Opportunity
Join us for an expert panel discussion and Q&A on current and future trends in employment and financial stability programming in the Greater Twin Cities.
Greater Twin Cities United Way recently launched a series of Community Insight Sessions with our community partners on topics that are critical to helping our community thrive, including access to stable housing, healthy food, a strong education and wealth-building jobs. Our September session was about career and future readiness. See a recap of the event.
You’re invited to join us for our next Community Insight on economic opportunity on Monday, October 28.
Minnesota is facing a historic labor shortage and skills gap. By 2024, our state is projected to have 400,000 unfilled jobs. Without an investment in educational and training experiences, we will not have the skilled workers needed to fill these positions. Additionally, persistent racial disparities disproportionately disadvantage people of color and American Indians from entering or advancing within the workforce.
At United Way, we recognize the significant role financial health plays as a predictor of financial mobility and stability. That’s why we’re partnering with the community on innovative programs to ensure everyone has the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills for employment, advance in their careers, and increase their net worth.
Date: Monday, October 28
Time: 1-2 p.m.
Location: Greater Twin Cities United Way, Stuart Wells Conference Room
Space is limited. RSVP through Eventbrite by October 24.
