Connecting Communities: Shifting Perspectives and Expectations on Employment

August 10 @ 3:00 pm 4:30 pm EDT

Woman working on an assembly line

This webinar is now available to watch on-demand.

Workers are key to the country’s economic success. Their voices are critical to conversations about understanding the labor market. Last year, the Federal Reserve held virtual focus groups across the US to find out how workers in lower-wage roles and job seekers with less than a bachelor’s degree experienced the labor market during the pandemic.

Join us for insights about how many workers are reshaping the workforce. The discussion will address enhanced expectations of job quality and how workers are using skill development and self-investment to change their economic opportunities.

During the event, Federal Reserve Presidents Raphael Bostic from the Atlanta Fed and Patrick T. Harker from the Philadelphia Fed will share their perspectives about this important topic.
