Career Pathways & Equity: Policy Recommendations

In 2021, collaborated with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and 12 key stakeholders – practitioners, policymakers, and funders – to have a year-long dialogue about increasing equity within career pathway programs. One of the most powerful tools in achieving this goal is policy change. As America’s workforce development system is one where all layers – federal, state, and local – have an impact on programs, services, and outcomes, the team was committed to identifying areas for policy change at every level.

This resource provides 5 policy recommendations on the local, state, and federal levels based on these findings.
