Join ReWork The Bay and the Insight Center for a dialogue to re-imagine a workforce system where women, people of color, immigrants and refugees have full access to the opportunities, rights, and protections needed to overcome economic fallout and systemic threats to health and safety. Drawing from the themes of our report on the Bay Area workforce’s racial and gender inequities, a panel of experts will lift up the experiences of people grappling with work, unemployment, and injustice during COVID-19. We will explore how public officials, advocates, organizers, service providers, and a multitude of stakeholders within the workforce system at large can come together, offering recommendations for bold change to our local, regional, and statewide systems and the economy.
