Atlanta Fed Center Launches Webinar Series on COVID-19 Impacts in Workforce Development

by FloridaWest News




Join the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s Center for Workforce and Economic Opportunity for a “Ask Us Anything” conversational webinar series. The webinars will occur every few weeks as the FRB navigates the federal, state, and local responses to COVID-19 impacts related to workforce investments. Each session will focus on a specific topic and will be content and presentation light and discussion heavy. Bring your thoughts on current responses, challenges, potential solutions, and ideas you’re incubating for a broader discussion with your colleagues in research, policy, and practice.

The first session will be held on Wednesday, April 29 at 1 p.m. (CT).  Register for “Ask Us Anything: Initial Observations and Responses to COVID-19.”

We will answer questions and provide an update on the first weeks of the pandemic and responses from the workforce development system. We will be joined by Kenyatta Lovett, assistant commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Labor, Kermit Kaleba, managing director of policy at the National Skills Coalition, and Julie Squire, policy director and general counsel at the National Association of State Workforce Agencies. We look forward to this initial webinar!
