Skills for an Inclusive Economic Recovery: 2022 Federal Policy Agenda












The Summit will highlight how historic federal investments in America’s workforce could shape an inclusive economic recovery for people and businesses most impacted by the recession and structural inequities. During this session, National Skills Coalition staff will dive deeper into the state of play on federal skills training policy and discuss innovative state workforce efforts that provide examples for federal policymakers. Panelists will also reflect on what the imperative for investments in skills training to contribute to racial equity in the workforce, help close the digital divide, and connect workers to quality jobs means for federal policy advocacy in 2022.


Opening remarks by Representative Bobby Scott (D-VA 3) and Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC 5)
