Partner with us on Workforce Development

Our Workforce Development team is seeking government partners at the regional and state levels to help us explore the role government might play in improving access to quality jobs in the digital age. We’re working to identify opportunities where technology can improve outcomes for job seekers—especially for those facing barriers to employment, such as people with criminal records and youth disconnected from work and school. We’re setting up site visits with government stakeholders over the summer in 2018.
