Since the recession of 2007-09 national employment has been unfamiliar relative to historical trends; high unemployment remains pervasive despite the incidence of increasing job vacancy rates. The objective of this roundtable is to better understand the complex nature of unemployment in LMI communities and to identify promising workforce strategies.
Select nonprofit organizations have been invited to present on workforce development challenges and opportunities in low- to moderate-income communities in the Los Angeles employment market. Together the banking and nonprofit sectors will assess where job related needs are the greatest and job related outcomes are the most impactful. Be sure to join us for an interesting panel discussion on ways local practitioners and their employer clients are exploring human capital development as a means of stabilizing low wealth communities. Preceding the discussion there will be an economic report on the labor and housing markets in the region. Following the speaker presentations there will be a closed session for bankers.
