Register today for this half-day symposium convening employers, educators, workforce development providers, and other workforce leaders who are using innovative partnership and place-based models to address North Philadelphia’s biggest workforce challenges and transform today's economic landscape.

Attendees can expect an engaging day of speakers, presentations, and working sessions focused on building cross-sector partnerships and strategies that prepare workers for in-demand jobs paying living wages, open doors to good jobs for diverse talent, use employer-led strategies to respond to employer needs, and accelerate equitable economic growth and recovery.


The speakers and sessions you will attend at this event will focus on:

  • The future of work in North Philadelphia and across the city
  • Employer-led approaches to equitable and inclusive job readiness, hiring, and career development in North Philadelphia.
  • Place-based models for piloting new programs and expanding pathways to Good Jobs for individuals and communities that have been historically underrepresented in the workforce.
  • Multi-stakeholder partnerships to break down silos between employers, workforce development leaders, and workers.

The full agenda and our speakers and presenters will be announced soon! Register for your spot today!

This event is presented in partnership with Temple University's Lenfest Center for Community Workforce Partnerships, The Economy League of Greater Philadelphia, University City District, Community College of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Works, Heights Philadelphia, Philadelphia OIC, and the Philadelphia Housing Authority.
