2021 AL DÍA Roundtable: Back to Work

Tue, 02/16/2021 - 1:27pm -- Brianned

About this event:

Recent research by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and others shows that Black and Hispanic workers have borne the weight of the economic crisis, disproportionately losing jobs or seeing a reduction in wages. As we start to look ahead to recovery and consider the impacts of automation on many jobs in our area, join us to hear from Patrick T. Harker, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, experts in workforce development, and local college leaders to learn about resources available to you as you look for your next opportunity.



During this event you’ll learn:

  • How you may already possess skills that are essential in higher-paying jobs. Skills-based occupational transitions — which focus on a job candidate’s skills rather than education level — can promote economic mobility for lower-wage workers even if you don’t have a bachelor’s degree.
  • About a new tool developed by the Federal Reserve Banks of Philadelphia and Cleveland that can help workers without a bachelor’s degree transition to occupations that require similar skill sets and provide a meaningful increase in pay.
  • About local educational and training programs available to help you find new job opportunities.


To ensure a more inclusive recovery, we need to be sure that all residents, particularly those in low-wage or unstable work, are able to connect to higher-paying jobs.
